Fusion Card Challenge - 'Peach Birthday'

It's time for another Fusion Card Challenge - 'Peach Birthday'!! This beautifully hued photo and fabulous sketch are both pretty lovely. SO.... which will you choose,  the sketch, the photo or both as your inspiration?

My project, taking cues from both the photo and the sketch, focuses on the lovely ombre rainbow. I poked through my scrap bin for little bits of pinky/peachy color and created my framed rainbow..... adding sprinkles of sparkle (to imitate the balloons), a simple (non-birthday) sentiment, a bit of texture on the mini slimline card base and a pretty paper strip to mimic the box pattern wallpaper behind the balloons. I fashioned a matching slimline envelope to complete the petite ensemble!

The DT has created LOTS of lovelies, so be sure to hop on over and join the party! When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo as you jumping off point. OR, if you are feeling super duper clever, you can fuse 'em together. 

stamps: Painted Peony (Concord & 9th)
paper: Stampers Select White, Berry Sorbet, Bitty Box Basics (PTI)
ink: Versafine Onyx
dies: Mini Slimline Essentials (Pinkfresh), Mini Slimline Card & Envelope (Trinity Stamps), 3x3 Rainbow Cover (The Stamp Market), Trendy Tag (MFT)
other: misc. sprinkles

We hope that you'll join in at the Fusion Card Challenge and will enjoy all of the loveliness from the DT and the always amazing gallery!
