Fusion and Make it Monday



This is my first blog post for a challenge, and I am combining two (no really three)  challenges!  The Make it Monday challenge over at PTI was all about velum overlays, and the Fusion challenge teamed up with CAS(e) this Sketch.  So I can add my card to all three!

I use the PTI cover plate diagonal stripes with some gold paper to mimic the napkin ring in the photo inspiration.  The velum banner was stamped and embossed with a sentiment from Garden Grace, and the butterfly is from SU.  I was really happy with the way this turned out.  And I am excited to be posting to my very own blog!  

Thanks for looking!
