Boho Kindness

Hello once again! I've created a card to share with you that was made using the current color challenge at Splitcoaststampers and this week's sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  I'm also entering it in the current challenge at Stampin' Up Only Challenges (SUO Challenges), where we are to use either a new stamp set from the 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! catalogue or a set that is new to us.  While the stamp set used for this card came out in last year's catalogue, I only recently bought it.

I started with a panel of Tempting Turquoise embossed with the new Boho Chic embossing folder, then adhered to a base of the new thick Whisper White card stock, which I LOVE because it is so nice and sturdy!

The color challenge of Tempting Turquoise, Crushed Curry and Smoky Slate are so pretty together, it just looks like summer doesn't it?  That's why I thought the Kinda Eclectic stamp set was perfect for both the color challenge and the sketch, with the bright sun image peeking out from behind the horizontal panel.

The leaves were fussy cut with my paper snips, the edges curled up a bit with a stylus, then adhered to the panel and topped with the button.  A Banner framelit was the perfect size to create the Crushed Curry banner.  All in all a very clean, simple and easy card.  Love it!

Thanks for looking today!  As always, your visit and comments are so appreciated.  Be sure to use the links above for fabulous inspiration, plus there's still plenty of time to join the challenges.

Have a great day!
