Celebrate Bohemian! CCMC371

Happy Thursday!!  It's time for another challenge from Create with Connie and Mary!  This coming week we have a fun sketch to use as a basis for our creating!

After an inventory of my current stamps and mulling over several ideas, I chose to use the Bohemian Borders set for my card.  I know the name says "Bohemian" but this set has a Native American look to me!  (which I really like, by the way!)

My card is rather clean and simple; the other ideas that I had seemed to make it too busy so stayed with the clean look:  Two rows of the diamond-shaped stamp in turquoise, centers of coral and a few diamond insets of saffron.  The banner is Calypso Coral anchoring the wood "Celebrate".  I believe this would make a great card for a guy. 

Stamps:  Bohemian Borders
Inks:  Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Calypso Coral; So Saffron Marker
Paper:  So Saffon, Whisper White, Calypso Coral.
Accessories:  Expressions Natural Elements, Paper Snips, Glue Dots, Dimensionals.

Here is sketch CCMC371 from Create with Connie and Mary for this week:

Margaret you are so good at the native American Indian look - and today's card is no exception! I am embarrassed to say I bought this set on preorder and have never inked it up - your card has inspired me to rectify that this week! The pattern makes a great background for the wooden element as your focal point - and as you say, a perfect guy card!

What a great CAS card, love the Native American look, too! I struggled with what set to use, too! Great job with the sketch this week!

I always think Native American when I see this set too. It looks awesome with the bright colors and wooden element. Love how you only did a few diamonds in So Saffron.

Great card using the Bohemian images. Love the colors and the wood sentiment. Sorry I am late with my comment. Family health issues. Better late than never!
