Fusion (Pretty In Pink) and HLS CAS(E) the Designer

Oh, no.  These are the last two cards I have ready to go.  I'd better get busy before some of the challenges I have ideas for close.

Ideas for the Fusion challenge came to me immediately, resulting in this card.
The back layer is embossing folder stamping with HA Navy ink.  The next layer is a new HA stencil with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.  The flower is from W & W, white embossed and watercolored with Spun Sugar.  I think you can tell what inspired me.  Now that I'm looking at this on screen, I could have adjusted the design a bit and did an actual fusion.
The designer to CAS(E) at Happy Little Stampers is the talented Shona Chambers who made this delightful card.
I pretty much copied her design using a different elephant and background color and stamp.
My elephant from WPlus9 is colored with Distress Ink.  The background image is from Casual Fridays exclusively for Stamp of Approval and the sentiment is from HLS Butterfly Birthday.

Well it looks like the storm is coming in.  It's 11 am EST and in the last 15 minutes the ground is lightly covered.  I hope the 8-12 inches they are predicting doesn't happen but if so, I guess I'll get more crafting done.

Stay safe out there and thanks for dropping by.
