Chevrons and Flowers.

Today my card is for two challenges. One I have played along with many times, CAS-ual Fridays (flowers and chevrons) and one brand new challenge Fusion Card Challenge. With this new challenge you can choose either the sketch or the photo to inspire you or you can create FUSION by combining the two.
I decided to go with FUSION for my first go and here is the sketch and the photo:


To be honest I thought I was going to give this week a miss as my ideas weren't working. Then this morning I   was reading Susan's post and her cards and ideas on using stash gave me an idea and off I went!  Susan was urging us to use our stash and had made some cards using brads-you can check them out here. So I decided to hunt out some brads that haven't been used for months and see what I could make and then I remembered the Fusion challenge....could I make a chevron pattern using the brads and bakers twine........what do you think??


I was quite pleased with this and actually all of this is from my stash.

I like this Fusion challenge as it seems like it will be run like the Muse Club where the participants get to vote on each others card. I have had such fun with the Muse club as you get to visit other crafters blog and get to see some fabulous creations and meet new people who without this challenge I may never have come across. And I am guessing this new challenge will do the same.

And as my card is flowers and chevrons and is pretty CAS I thought it was perfect for this week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.

Have a great week x
