Fusion Card Challenge #7

Welcome to another Fusion Card Challenge...have you seen the winners for Challenge #6?  We had so many fabulous cards submitted was so difficult to choose a favorite!  Check out the winners here.
Now...on to Challenge #7!  What do you think of the inspirational photo and sketch?

Here's how to play along:

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.

I based my card on the sketch this week...I loved that oval in front of the two rectangles in the sketch.  I've been waiting all year to use my Waltzingmouse  A Good Egg stamps...last year I got them too late for Easter, so it was like using a brand new stamp set!
I used a couple of notebook dies and stamped a bright pattern with a few of the stamps from A Good Egg.  For the oval portion, I used one of the cute Easter Eggs and matching cut files that go along with the set.  I also used a cut file to cut out that sweet bunny and banner.  I wanted to bring out more of the green color so I added a small vine die cut from Poppy Stamps.  I clipped all the elements onto each other with a mini clothes pin.   This was such a fun card to make.

So...what will it be for you this week?  The Sketch, the photo or a combination of both?  You have until Monday April 7th at noon PST to submit your card...can't wait to see what you come up with!

Check out what the rest of the Fusion Design Team have made with this week's challenge:

Beautiful Easter card Cathy! I love all the bold color. I always think of Easter with pastels, but this really packs a punch. The little notebook pages with with the bent edges are so cool! Everything is wonderfully coordinated - the woodgrain, burlap, and all the layers! Beautiful!

Fantastic card, Cathy. So bright and cheery. Your stamped notebook die looks just like fancy patterned paper. That's what I thought it was at first, and I was marveling at how well you were able to match your colors. Just perfect for a hand delivered Easter card.

Absolutely love the 'Collage' feel of your card! Great layout/sketch!
Love what you did with the spiral note DP's, the worn and used 'feel' gives it a little extra.
