Fusion challenge, take 2 and CAS-ual Fridays #97

I'm giving the Fusion challenge another try, and this also works for CAS-ual Fridays current challenge, "Chevrons and Flowers".



I used part of a gorgeous large Penny Black stamp called Bed of Roses and paper-pieced it with some Amuse dotted papers in the colors I saw in the Fusion challenge.  Again I used my MFT Die-Namics Chevron Stripes die and added a PTI sentiment from Garden Variety.  I added some orange/gold gemstones to the center of the big pink rose.  This looks really neon here, but irl these colors are not quite so bright......it's a dreary day here and I did the best I could with my editing........If you'd like to see another take on the Fusion challenge, please scroll down 1 post or click here.

You are really on a roll today with this. I love the dotted paper and the flowers are gorgeous! What a wonderful take on the challenge.

We are finally having a gorgeous day here in Georgia - sunshine and a breeze! I am going to enjoy it while I can because I know there will eventually be a heat wave :)
