Fusion for You

Here's my card for the current Fusion challenge.  I used the sketch along with elements from the inspiration photo along with the color scheme from the current Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge to put this one together.

For You-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps
Like in the inspiration photo, a dress form serves as my focal image. My dress form is from the Waltzingmouse Stamps You're Lovely set.  I stamped it on a piece of text patterned paper and cut it out, then used foam tape to adhere it to the oval panel. 

To bring in a feminine element to go with the dress form, I used a piece of floral patterned paper across the bottom of the light blue card base.  It's matted on mustard cardstock to set it off a bit.  I added a pair of patterned papers, one dotted and one striped, then set the image panel on top.  The "for you" sentiment from the Cameo to Go set was stamped in teal ink directly on the light blue dotted panel.

It's hard to see in the photo, but I did include one final detail on the card.  I wanted to mimic the scarf on the dress form in the photo in some way.  Instead of a scarf, I ended up adding a "necklace" made from teeny, tiny dots of copper Liquid Pearls.  It brings in just a bit more of the earthy color tone found in the floral paper and a little sparkle, too.

Materials Used:
You're Lovely and Cameo to Go stamp sets (Waltzingmouse Stamps); Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa and Teal Zeal inks (Tsukineko); Soft Sky and More Mustard cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Front Porch 6x6 paper pad (Pebbles); Stella and Rose-Mabel "Little Ladies" Fine Flowers designer paper (My Mind's Eye);  Die-namics pierced oval die (My Favorite Things); oval die (Spellbinders); Copper Pearl Liquid Pearls (Ranger); foam tape
