Fabulous FUSION April Showers...

Back to earth (so to speak) after our fabulous French adventure to this fortnights FUSION inspiration. I may have to create more than just one rainbow inspired card this fortnight. I couldn't resist including this photo I took as we were heading back from an afternoon at the Musee du quai Branly. Walking in the pouring rain when sun suddenly broke through the clouds revealing the brightest rainbow I had ever seen - it was almost as though you could reach out and touch it and you could actually see where it ended - but I wasn't about to excavate the middle of this busy Parisian intersection to look for a pot of gold LOL!

So cute this couple sheltering from the rain under the cover of the rainbow too! 

Inspired by the gorgeous FUSION April Showers photo, I combined this with the current Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try and created the rainbow circle by stamping Reverse Confetti Color Me Happy "paint splashes" in a rainbow of Momento Luxe and Hero Arts Neon inks, die cut with Lil Inkers Stitched Circles, and stamped with this super appropriate Reverse Confetti Shine From Within sentiment. Silver glitter starts diecut with Lil Inkers Stitched Stars, and cloud background created with Mama Elephant border.

This month we are also lucky enough to be joined by special Guest Designer, Bonnie Sharp so make sure you stop by for some extra fabulous inspiration from Bonnie and the FUSION team!

I would LOVE if you could join in the fun @ FUSION too!
