What is Bo-Ho Anyway?

If any of gals that were at our stamp club meeting last week see this post, they will be laughing...(waving a cyber hi! to Marcy, Pat, Tiffany, Kelly and Abby!) I LOVE, LOVE the set True Friends from the current mini catalog and especially LOVE this flower image. Isn't it sweet? I don't know what it is about it that grabs me but it is so sweet. But what I want to know is what is BoHo? Currently the BoHo style is very popular in paper crafting. This set has a BoHo feel but I don't know what it means to be Bo-Ho? Anyone else know?
I wish I could say this pocket card was all my idea, but it wasn't. I seem to be stuck in a CASE-it rut right now. We did a card just like this at Regionals in Canada a couple weeks ago. The only thing I changed was the image on the tag. The original card that Stampin' Up! designed used the {Thank U} image, which doesn't do it for me. So I used my favorite image in this set, the BoHo flower. I colored it with Stampin Write Markers and can say I adore the way this turned out. The colors were completely Stampin' Up!'s design and I love them together!!
Supplies: Kraft cardstock, Soft Sky cardstock and ink, Mellow Moss cardstock and ink, Red gingham ribbon, tag corner punch, Ruby Red brads, So Saffron cardstock, Stampin Dimensionals

I think it is short for Bohemian? But I'm not sure what that really means either.

I saw the title and immediately giggled! :) You crack me up!

Love this card! I'm thinking Bohemian too, but what exactly is that style? Who knows? Not me! Sounds like you had fun trying to figure it out. LorieR

Yeah, I am sure it stands for Bohemian but what is that? I picture some lady who walks around barefoot with long unwashed hair who smells like funny incesnse, but this set doesn't scream that to me!

I think it's Bohemian too, but I agree with you. When I was a kid, being called "a wild Bohemian" was not a good thing!
But I love the card.
