Welcome to the Fancy Friday blog hop for September.  If this is your first visit to our hop, we are a group of past and present Stampin' Up! Artisans who love to craft together and bring you inspiration each month.

And this month is a doozy!  Susan Wong set us a colour challenge of Mango Melody, Powder Pink, Pacific Point, Smoky Slate, White and Rich Razzleberry.  We didn't have to use all the colours if we didn't want to, but I like a challenge and the inspiration photo did it for me.  One of the team mentioned how "Boho" it felt.  So I ran with that!  What is Boho?  One definition is a melting pot of colour, texture and pattern.  I think I managed to achieve all those things on this wee card!

The trick to using lots of colours in a challenge (and ones I wouldn't necessarily put together anyway!) is to make two or three the stars of your project and using only a little of all the others.  The Country Home stamp set was perfect for this!  I went one step further by mixing Mango Melody and Pacific Point together to create the green for the leaves in the jug.

Next up on the hop is my delightful friend Cathy Caines.  I seriously love everything this girl does!
