Playing in Challenges

I got myself caught up with my DT work and decided to take some time to challenge play.

I am sure you have all seen/ heard about the latest challenge out there in blogland - Fusion.
The concept is fun; be inspired by the sketch, the colors, or mix both together.

I went ahead and combined both.  I liked the simple sketch, and I also liked the color of the flowers.

Rather than stamping the chevrons, I used my MFT Chevron dies, along with the Trio of Flowers dies.  My sentiment and the circles inside the flowers are from Dare 2B Artzy, Live Life.

For the next challenges I made this card;

I adore the colors from Less is More - lime & black. The sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch was quite fabulous - I love tags on cards.
I am also entering this into a couple of challenges I don't play in very often, Addicted to CAS; Friend, and CASology; Up (butterflies fly up, right?)  My butterflies are Hero Arts and the "Friends" is from Dare 2B Artzy, Rose.

Well, I had another great Saturday playing in all the challenges out there in blogland.  Thanks to all the sites, Teams and sponsors for keeping these challenges interesting and fun.
