Fusion: 1940's Vintage Birthday Card

 
Welcome to another fun Fusion Challenge!
  
I jumped on the sketch this time, specifically the can on the left. Here are the elements I took from that can:
  • blue stripe background (w&w Scenery: Stripes)
  • red label with white writing (Top Dog Dies Gift Tag)
  • yellow outline (shh ... sneak of w&w new release)
  • sentiment printed on top of the stripes (w&w Sugar Rush, Altenew Birthday Bash)
  
The stripes I had to re-do. The first time they were too intense, so I restamped them without taking care to get a solid image. The worn look seemed to fit more with the vintage can photo.
 

Here are some fabulous cards by our design team!



WinnersWill be chosen by all of our teammates, each choosing one favorite. The winners will be announced at 4 am (PST) in two weeks!


Thanks for looking!
