Fusion #1 - A New Challenge!

Hello!

There's a new challenge on the block! I've been waiting eagerly for this one. It's called FUSION, and it's exciting! I will admit that I had several ideas flying around as soon as I saw the inspiration. This card is the first that I made into reality.
Stamps are Simon Says Stamp Flower Friend, PTI Stylish Sentiments: Birthday, Mama Elephant Background Basics. Colours are Hero Arts Pale Tomato, SU! Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, and Poppy Parade, Memento Tuxedo Black.

This is the inspiration. I used Lesley's Inspiration Photo and tried to recreate that beautiful cake with stamps. I added the frilly plate edge, and I added the black and white tablecloth as well. ;-)
Don't be surprised to see me back with another Fusion card this week. I am seriously inspired! I love it when that happens. ;-)

Thanks for dropping by to visit.
