Pillow Talk...

When I first saw the inspiration for this challenge, I immediately knew what I wanted to do. I know that some of the girls are using each of the individual pillows as inspiration, but I am using them collectively as inspiration for my card.

I chose the SU! colors Soft Sky and So Saffron because I felt they complimented each other nicely and I knew that I could work with them. In addition to knowing what colors I wanted to use, I knew that I wanted to use Fancy Florals Remixed because it paired well with the Cuttlebug die (from the Harlequin die set). I alternated orientation and colors of the dies on the base of my card. For my main panel, I used a Nestabilities rectangle die. I topped off the stamped panel with more layered Cuttlebug dies. The beading on the pillows had me reaching for my Bella Baubles in Pearl. I love the Pearl color because it gives you a little more "umph" than clear, it's elegant and softly accents your card. How's that for a little pillow talk? ;)

We hope that you will find some divine inspiration within these pillows, too. Please be sure to link your wonderful creations HERE.
