I Just Want to Espresso My Thanks - Fusion #18

When I first saw the current Fusion Card Challenge my first thought was I might pass on playing but I ultimately decided that since I'd set up my Cameo for my craft session this weekend I'd put it to use for this challenge. The card I wound up with is definitely what I'd consider a 'hybrid' since I created the grey/white DSP digitally, cut the shapes with a combination of punches, dies and my Cameo and the stamped the sentiment.

The rules of the Fusion Card Challenge allow you to use the inspiration image, the sketch or a combination of both. I primarily focused in on the teal cup with it's white and red floral pattern and picked up the rest of the colors in this fun retro print too. Although my layout is a variation of the one supplied you can clearly see the influence in my layout so I guess this would be a Fusion design.

Happy Crafting!
