Sassy Bohemian Chic & My Top Annual Catalogue Picks!

I can't seem to get enough of the Bohemian Borders stamp set. This time I used the diamond images. I stamped with several different colours, Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, Cucumber Crush and Sahara Sand. I decided to soften it a bit by layering a piece of Vellum Cardstock underneath a piece I had left after cutting out the medium butterfly from the Butterfly Thinlits Dies.

I added a layer of Cucumber Crush to tie in the ink colour and added some Boho Chic embossed panels on Mint Macaron card stock. The sentiment is from Sassy Salutations in the Annual Catalogue. 

As a final touch I added some strips of Gold Glimmer paper. I love the the Butterfly thinlits can work in two different ways a die cut and stencil/outline. I hope you like it, have a super day!

My Top Catalogue Picks...
Now, I understand that my tastes may differ from others, but I thought I'd share some of the items that I ordered and why! Not in any particular order...

Well, this is always a must have because who doesn't love new colours to play with?! I really love all 5 of the colours too. Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe.. love the fun names. That would be a great job getting to name the new colours!
