Fusion Card Challenge: Happy 1st Anniversary!

Happy New Year!  Today, I am lucky enough to be joining the Fusion Card Challenge and a whole slew of creative designers in celebrating Fusion's one year anniversary.  A special thank you to my friend and Fusion Designer Jeanne Jachna of A Kept Life for inviting me to join in this happy occasion.  One year ago today, the Fusion Card challenge made its debut with one of the most interesting challenges in blogland.  I am sure you are all familiar with this challenge...if not, where have you been all year?  LOL, this challenge could not be any easier to play.  Every two weeks there is a new challenge posted with both a gorgeous picture or a great sketch to use for your inspiration.  Use either, both or fuse them together to create "Fusion" with your card.  How easy is that?
Here's the challenge for the anniversary celebration:

I used the beautiful photograph as my inspiration.  

I loved the soft pink, tans and the chalkboard in the photo and used stamps from My Favorite Things and a few Memory Box dies to reproduce the yummy looking ombre swirled cake in the photo.  My attempt at making twine tassels did not turn out (they were terrible), so I used a die cut Verve banner across the top instead.

Congratulations to Fusion Card Challenge on their first anniversary and again, thank you Jeanne for inviting me to play along.

Be sure to stop by the Fusion Card Challenge blog and wish them a Happy Anniversary...and don't forget to play along with this special challenge.
