Fusion#3 – Valentine Card

fusion 2 valentine

A few weeks ago, I found a new challenge blog, called Fusion Card Challenge.  They post 2 inspirations at a time…a photo and a layout sketch. You can participate by using either or both inspirations.

This card is for the Fusion #3 Challenge, and I used both the layout sketch and the inspiration photo (Valentine themed).

I die cut different size hearts out of white cardstock and out of Echo Park Yours Truly paper. I replaced the white cutouts with the Echo Park paper, added a few more punched hearts (the gray ones are covered with Glossy Accents), a few wooden hearts, and a few heart Twinkle stickers.

Here is the inspiration:
