Fusion: Rustic Flowers

The sketch and inspiration at the Fusion Card Challenge was just perfect for a new-to-me stamp set that's been sitting on the corner of my desk for way too long.  It's a dainty floral bouquet with multiple layered color options. Thanks to Fusion, I opened it up, paired it with some woodgrain and I have a sweet card!

Here's the challenge. I think you can see why I credit them for the inspiration!

There are actually three layers for the flowers but I didn't want my flowers to get any darker so I skipped the top layer. The colored layers of the leaves are split into multiple stamps so I did the leaves closer to the flower in a slightly darker color. 

I found the sentiment from a different set by the same company.  I do tend to stick with one company on a card.  It has nothing to do with the company - and everything to do with narrowing down my search for sentiments.  I can really obsess over my sentiment.  It has to say the right thing, be the right size, and match the style.  If I mentally limit myself to the same company as the image - it limits my time to obsess!  I'm only telling you this today because this is one of the times that I'm extra thrilled with the outcome - I love everything about that sentiment paired with the flowers!
