Fusion Card Challenge - Welcome back!

Happy New Year everyone. No major resolutions made here, just a quiet deal with myself to stop worrying so much!! Ekkkk!

This is my first Challenge for the year, but it is the finish of the month long Fusion Challenge.  I just wanted to join in celebrating Fusion's re-emergence. Yey!!! I am a bit rusty after nearly two weeks out of the craft room. Hmmmmm!

I just love these intricate IO deer dies, such gorgeous silhouettes. This is their first 'outing'. 
I enjoyed sprinkling embossing powder like icing sugar ( I think it's called confectioner's sugar in the US) on the tag. It is not held in place with Versamark so it was a bit of mission to heat it gently from a distance without blowing it away.

Dies: MFT Tag die, Impression Obsession deer dies, 'JOY' Lil' Inker, EK edge punch
Papers: Kaisercraft red, craft and brown, Gordon Harris white,  MME Santa Claus and Love Me

Thanks for stopping by.

Fliptastic winning take on the Fusion photo, Karen!! I love that you used your NBUS reindeer (on my wish list now!) and the information about that sugar snow you magically attached!! The whole design is sensational!! Happy New Year!! Hugs, Darnell

Beautiful Karen. You don't look rusty at all! The great thing about taking a break is that you come back rejuvenated with lots of ideas and creativity ... and that's what you've done here. LOVE! I'm adding the IO deer to my wish list - thanks for enabling :) Loll xx
