Post image for Fusion Challenge 10-31

Here is my take on the current Fusion challenge.  I used both the sketch and the inspiration photo.  Tangerine Tango and Basic Black along with my trio of white embossed rectangles picks up the color combo from the photo.  I used dew drops because of the glassware on the table and orange flowers to represent the arrangement of roses.

Card details:  Tangerine Tango ink…white embossing powder (I used my stamping block and white craft ink to create my embossed rectangles)…orange dew drops…Stampin Up’s Flower Shop stamp set and matching punch…black buttons and white baker’s twine to finish off my flowers.
