Chipboard challenge day 4

I've been having fun doing all kinds of different things to chipboard this week. I hope some of you are playing along with me! I did this layout for a challenge at Crop Addict and thought I would share it today. The challenge was to use "naked chipboard" on a layout. Sometimes doing nothing is the hardest thing of all! Because of the faded, natural look of the naked chipboard, I used an old picture from my husband's childhood. The colors are a bit muted so they go nicely with the chipboard. The background is cardstock from Stampin' Up! in artichoke, chocolate chip and summer sun. I stamped the 'family times' with artichoke craft ink. The rickrack is from a crazy collection I got from Rusty Pickle. Circus, I think. I stapled it on to add some metal to the page. The quotes are stickers (gasp!) from Me & My Big Idea that I stuck to craft cardstock and then rubbed some ink to the edges. Some are popped up and some aren't. I have to say it was hard not to add some ink or something to that chipboard flower, but I think it turned out okay!
Your challenge is to use some 'naked chipboard' on something today. Be sure to share what you made with me!
