TECC19 - Boho Backgrounds














Hello again!!! Sorry I have kept you waiting, but I had to run around with my girls to find some presents.....

Here is my card I've made for Taylor Van Bruggen's TECC19 Cupcake Challenge. You can see the Sketch right here.

I couldn't go to sleep last night... ...I guess I was to excited about the Inspiration Challenge - LOL!!! Had to get the IC card out of my system first and then I was all wired up.......so I thought I'd tackle this one too.

This card measures 3/14" x 6 1/2". I have used So Saffron as my base and added a layer of Whisper White and for the center I have used Basic Black and another Whisper White.

Next I have pierced above and below the Basic Black CS. The main image is from the *Boho Backgrounds* Set and it was stamped in Versamark and embossed with Black EP. I have punched the image out with a 1 1/2" circle Punch then I've layered it on top of a circle So Saffron CS and a Basic Black scalloped circle - both are cut out Nestie's. I have added a *medium* Silver Brad in the center and the whole medallion was raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

The card was looking a little *plain* - so I had to add a strip of So Saffron on top and one on the bottom. I liked that much better!!! The sentiment is from the *Essence of Love* Set and it was stamped it Basic Black.

Hope you like it??? Have a great weekend!!!

It is a 100 F here in GA and I'm taken my girls to the pool - see ya soon!!!
