Boho Friend
I spent way too much time on this card today! I followed Beate’s sketch for this weekend, and used a color combination suggested by Stampin’ Up! for the Soft Sky In Color: Soft Sky, Close to Cocoa, Ruby Red, and Taken with Teal.

I wanted to use one of the metal edge tags on this layout, but I had a hard time centering the medallion image inside the metal ring. I ended up stamping the image on Soft Sky paper with Close to Cocoa ink and removing the white paper from the metal edge tag. Then I glued the ring onto the Soft Sky paper. The medallion was stamped two more times on Whisper White paper, with Taken with Teal and Ruby Red ink. The teal medallion was punched out with the 1-1/4″ circle punch, and the red flower cut out with paper snips. Every layer of the medallion is supported by a Stampin’ Dimensional (or two or three).

I inked up the word Friend from the Boho Backgrounds set with a Close to Cocoa marker and stamped it on a Soft Sky scrap. The paper was then cut even more so that it would fit inside the small HodgePodge frame. I attached the frame to the Taken with Teal panel with Whisper White taffeta ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Vera – I like what you did with the sketch…I have yet to use the metal edge tags, but I love the look of them!
