Okay, this is really a wild design I know. As a matter of fact, my husband asked if I was "really" planning on mailing it to someone. Well, yes I am - to my son :)
This is for today's color challenge (CC392 Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie). I did not have the exact colors, but went with as close as I could.
I stamped the main panel with stamps from 2 different SU sets (Art of Life, and Asian Art). Then I ran through an inked up EF to give a 2-toned design behind the image. I then punched out 6 photo corners and glued in my "odd" design. Added large brad and twine and said I better stop while I was ahead (or am I already too late - LOL?).
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a closer look. Hope you like it :)

You gave me a giggle with your title, Barb, It is a blending of ethnic patterns....you could add the word "Scottish" to the mix with the argyle embossing pattern! : ) I really like its modern design....and I'm sure your son will too.
