CTS#81 and Fusion challenge

Hi everyone.

Taking part this time in the joint challenge from the ladies at CAS(E) This Sketch and Fusion.

This is the inspiration photo and sketch they have given us to work with:

I have followed the sketch and used the colours in the inspiration photo.
This is what my card looks like:

I have used my Tim Holtz Chevron die to cut the chevron and added gold inlays in a few of the chevrons.  Leaf stamp and coordinating die from Verve ('Bloom & Grow' set) and the flower is the 'Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose' from the Die-namics range by MFT.  Added some gold embroidery thread and a pearl and stamped the sentiment saying:  'Congratulations'.

Thanks for taking the time to pop in!!  Always a pleasure to have you here and to read your comments!!!

Till next time!!!
Kind regards.

Daardie spatsel goud in die chevron is perfek! En n pragtige blom perfek geraam met die borduurgare! Ek wil dit ook probeer!
Dankie vir die inspirasie!

Another stunning card Petra! I love the 'mini' rose, especially with the pretty pearl! Great way to incorporate gold into your design with the random bits of inlaid gold pieces and the gold sproinky thread! Beautiful!!!
