A Bright Spark @ FUSION...

This fortnight's FUSION is full of FUN! As you can see, I was inspired by the bright colours and rolled paper cylinders, as well as the fabulous sketch.  In my card the three arrows morphed into the three words and colours.

Created by cutting down three paper party straws as "candles" and knotting a length of twine in each as the "wicks". Stamped Avery Elle's Cake & Candles sentiment in Momento Luxe Dandelion, Hero Arts Soft Pool and Momento Luxe Rose Bud, to match the candle stripes. This cool spotted paper is from American Crafts.

How to join in the fun...
1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
5. Please read the other considerations on the Our Rules Page before playing along.

Can't wait to see how you will be inspired by this fortnights FUSION!  Remember to stop by the fabulous Design Team blogs for more fantastic inspiration - you know you want to!
