I love the graphic at the Fusion Card Challenge - so warm and such a wonderful glow. I was inspired by the wood and the sweater, the glow of the candles and the pops of black. I also used the sketch.
I used So Saffron paper that I spritzed with sparkle for the candles. I also liked the pops of black in the inspiration but didn't want a solid black so I pulled out a glitter paper that gave it a slightly mottled and sparkly look. Stampin' Up's In Good Taste dsp has beautiful woodgrains. Then I was going to go with a sweater in the background, but I wanted to keep it delicate so used the Tasteful Textile embossing folder.
This was going to be an all Stampin' Up card but I got all the dies laid out and had a vision for the size and shape of the sentiment. Wouldn't you know? I had nothing like it in my SU collection. So I used an old Papertrey Ink sentiment.
Thank you to the Fusion Challenge. I have a number of these sunflowers cut out already and I just hadn't put a card together that I liked. There weren't sunflowers in your inspiration photo - but it worked!!
