Blogger's Challenge #6


This card took on a life of its own. We saw a lot of "Boho West" themed projects at convention so this emerged from everything I saw, I guess! I started out with Really Rust and Blue Bayou as my color choices...where's the blue? Never happened! Once I made the smaller flower (the center of the really big flower...that's a jumbo eyelet with a matching brad in the center...it fits perfectly and adds a little something, I think.) I pulled out the Round Up Simply Scrappin' Kit (SSK). I used one piece of the DSP (Designer Series Paper) from the SSK and used both sides. I also used one strip of the die-cut adhesive strips to make the design on the bottom. Trimtastic stamp set made yet another appearance as I used Craft Really Rust and clear embossing powder to make the strip of boho "ribbon". I added brads and a piece of Kraft Taffeta ribbon. The rest, I think, is explanatory. Our challenge was to use the layout on page 165 of the Fall Winter Collection. Don't forget to click on the links on the sidebar of my blog to see some other awesome cards using this same layout! It's so awesome to see the variety of ideas on just one layout!

Great card, Lisa. Like Jane's card, it's very Western Chic. I'm not sure what BoHo is...if I understood that then I would probably chime in with that too...ha!
