Fusion Card Challenge - It's a New Year


Welcome!  -  Today I'm sharing a card I created for the new Fusion challenge. - It's a New Year.
For this challenge you can either use just the sketch or the inspiration photo or both.
For my card this time I just went with the inspiration photo.  I really liked all the gold sparkle and the bokeh.  Here is what I created:

 I went CAS with this card and also made my very first Christmas card for this year, (getting a head start!)
Card Base is Basic White.  Next I added a layer of Brushed Gold card stock (retired SU and my very last scrap of it, boo hoo).
On top of the gold layer I added a piece of white designer card stock that has gold/silver glitter pieces in it.
I used some punched poinsettias (Waffle Flower cover die
Using the gold/white designer paper from Paper Studio that I purchased at WalMart.  To the center of those flowers I used my new, Gold Luxe Nuvo Dream Drops.
I embossed the sentiment (D. Hunter) with Bold Gold embossing powder (SU) on Basic White cs and mounted it with foam tape over the sparkly paper.
I really like how sparkly it turned out but boy is it hard to get a decent picture of the sparkle. 
Thank you for stopping by & have a nice day.


  1. beautiful and I love those sparkling poinsettias

  2. Very classy looking. I like the shine of the flowers and I can see the sparkle in the designer paper on top of the gold layer. Perfection in every way.

  3. GORGEOUS! I too wish we could see the sparkle better, but I can sure some from here. This is a really pretty card, Ida, and a great way to use those "leftovers" (which I have...)

  4. That is a great card. I sure would be happy if I had made it, or if I received it.

  5. Lovely! The gold sparkle is perfect! Thanks for joining us at Fusion!

  6. What a great design! I just love it and I know the sparkle must be really super because I can see it in the photo and that means it's amazing in real life. There's no time like the present to get started on next year's cards.

  7. Absolutely beautiful! I love the elegance of the neutrals with all of the shine and sparkle.
