This image is an Elisabeth Bell for SCACD - Boho Chic.

Our wonderful leader challenged us this week to do a Fancy Fold card with one of the images from the Elisabeth Bell Sampler Edition #2. That was easy for me. I love these images. I have been wanting to do a flap card so I gave it a try and added a pocket for a gift card. This image, Boho Chic, reminds me of one of my granddaughters - Mackenzie. She loves bright colors and wild hairstyles and considers herself a hippie chic. Mind you, she is only 10. I colored the image with Copics and added stickles for some sparkle. The bow was made using the Bow Easy( my favorite tool) and I added a Petaloo Dazzler flower. Check out the glitter buttons. I put a rhinestone on them instead of scrappers floss to bring it together. This is the first time I have used these buttons and I was surprised to see so much glitter. They make a wonderful embellishment. I was able to get a little stitching, but not as much layering as I like to do.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Whimsy Stamps - Die Cuts
Frosted Designs - Use a Scallop
Stamp Something - Glitzy something
One Stop Craft Challenge - Fancy Folds

This sentiment is a Susanament. It worked so great with the image and the whole theme of this card. I get the older grandkids gift cards for Chirstmas so I am always looking for new ways to present them. I made the flap card and added a pocket for the gift card. Works perfectly.

I made a simple envelope for the card and I won't have to put a name on it because the colors fit Mackenzie's personality.

Thank you for stopping by and be sure and check out the other DT samples. They are a great inspiration and will give you alot of new ideas.

Susana is having a great sale right now. Be sure and check out her Specials.

Dianne, sorry it has taken me forever to get over here and comment on this card. I have been seeing it on my sidebar and also saw it on Card of the Week and think it is OUTSTANDING. I really love it - the colors and paper design are fabulous and I love the way you have colored the image. The flap card design is very cool. I really admire you for the way you try new things (and the always seem to come out beautiful)!
