Fusion Card Challenge #5

I hope you have been playing along with the new Fusion Card Challenge...we have had so many players and a ton of beautiful cards submitted based on either our sketches or inspiration photos.  If you haven't heard about us...all you have to do is make a card based on either:
The Sketch
The Inspiration Photo
Combine them both to create "Fusion"

For Fusion Card Challenge #5, we have another great sketch and photo for you to use:
This week I decided to use just the sketch.  I was drawn to the big circle image and the gentle curve along the bottom.  My first thought was a snow bank, but ended up making some rolling hills instead.  I cut my hills by hand and used a silhouette cut file for the barn and windmill.  I ran the barn layer through a crimper to give it a little more texture.  I hope you can see that the big sun image (also a silhouette cut file) is meant to replace the large circle in the sketch.  I cut it from card stock, laid it over my card base and used the negative space to sponge on harvest gold ink.  The cute farm animals and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink's On the Farm Stamp and Die sets.  

So, what is going to inspire you this week?  Will it be the sketch...or the photo...or a combination of both?  Either way, you have plenty of time to play along.  This challenge ends on Tues. March 11th at noon PST.  I can't wait to see what you create!

What a cute little farm scene you created. Is this what it is like in Norco? I love how you interpreted the sketch, and also how you combined elements from your stamps, dies and silhouette as well.

Cathy, the scene you created is absolutely perfect! Love it!
