WSC43 - One of a Kind

First of all I just wanted to let you know that my little Mimi is doing okay....she had a little collision with her sister on the neighbors trampoline and must have fell funny onto her sister cutting her tongue with her own teeth....- it was a very deep and long cut, but thank goodness the doctors did not need to sew it together...they said they would have placed her under full anesthesia if she would have bit through it....that would have been major drama....

Lucky Mimi gets to eat lots of ice cream and mainly liquid foods plus she has to take penicillin to fight off any infections!!!

Anyway - here is the card I have made for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #43.

This card is dedicated to "Lindsay" from California and Stephanie Eisele aka "Stampin Cats" who both chose the "One of a Kind" Set as their favorite when they participated in my Blog Candy Giveaway!!! Way to go ladies!!!

I love this Bohemian Set and I also love the colors Kristina Werner had going on on her color challenge #4 - Tempting Turquoise, Taken with Teal, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive and Very Vanilla. These colors remind me of the trips I use to take to the Middle East when I was a Flight Attendant. They had the most beautiful beaches ever and the picture totally reflects that beauty!!!

The card I have made measures 4" x 4". The Tempting Turquoise CS was CB'd with the "Textile" folder and then I've made the panel on the left with Chocolate Chip and a stripe of Close to Cocoa - for the scallop edge I've used the Corner Rounder and added the Mini gold Brads. The panel was finished off with the Tempting Turquoise Ribbon from SU.

The main image was stamped with Chocolate Chip onto Very Vanilla and another with the Tempting Turquoise CS - both were cut out and raised with Stampin Dimensionals. For the center I have used the Build a Brad from SU and stamped that little flower image with Old Olive.

Hope you like my "Bohemian" card and I'll see ya soon!!!
