The color challenge on SCS last Tuesday was to use Stampin' Up River Rock, Chocolate Chip and Really Rust. Well, I finally got around to trying it today. I pulled out the colors of cardstock, and immediately thought "well, those are very 'boho' colors, and I have no stamps that fit that description at all!" But I started plugging away! I actually have a clear set of stamps (another new-job/supply cabinet inheritance!) and I have no idea what company they're from, but it's a nice flower set. So I thought this particular flower fit the bill nicely. Then as I looked at these colors more, this Designer Paper came to mind, and I was thrilled to find how well it matched the challenge colors! So here's my Boho-Chic card!

Stamps: flower from unknown clear set; "Thoughts" stamp from Michael's $1 bin
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Really Rust, Very Vanilla; DP from We R Memory Keepers Urban Window Collection
Ink: Versarmark (inked the clear stamp with this first before the SU! dye ink); Stampin' Up Really Rust, River Rock, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Marvy mega oval punch and giga scalloped oval punch; Stampin' Up River Rock stitched grosgrain and copper brads; corner rounder; sponges; foam squares

Thanks so much for posting this! I bought this paper. I love it but have NO idea what to do with it. I'm going to look through my stamps tonight to try to find something that will work. I love your card!
