Fusion Card Challenge with Gerda Steiner image

I am loving spending some time creating with whatever images I like and joining in some challenges.

I was inspired by the current Fusion Challenge sketch and theme, and it worked perfectly for the freebie Gerda Steiner digital image 'Coffee Mouse'. I have been dying to use this image!

Here is the fusion challenge:

I decided to use the sketch AND the hot drink/black & white theme from the photo.

Here is my card:

I love how this turned out! I did rotate the sketch 180 degrees to fit my image and sentiment better.

I printed the Coffee Mouse image and sentiment onto white cardstock and colored the image in with my Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers. I then fussy cut him out.

I cut the white cardstock panel containing the printed sentiment to measure 3 5/8" x 4 7/8'. 

I used papers from MFT's Its Bitsy Polka Dots and Black & white stripes paper packs. I then adhered the panel onto a piece of black cardstock measuring 3.75" x 5".

I adhered this onto a standard A2 red card base and finished off the card by popping up the image on foam dots!

A quick and easy, CAS card.
I will also be adding this card into the Share Your Designs challenge over on the Gerda Steiner website.

Thanks for looking!
Happy crafting x
