My Pillow CASE

As promised, here is my first Pillow Case from this Sunday's challenge. I think it came out pretty well, although in my typical fashion I didn't leave quite enough white space and the flower from Older and Wiser turned out to be just a bit too large in scale. Still, overall I think I captured the feel of this bedding, so I guess I met the challenge.

As I mentioned, I used the flower from Older and Wiser to stamp the background on whisper white card stock with bashful blue, ballet blue, certainly celery and chocolate chip stampin' write markers. I used the Frames with a Flourish set to stamp the square frame in bashful blue ink on whisper white card stock and stamped the sentiment from Sincere Salutations in ballet blue, then added a ballet blue mat.

I punched two holes on either side of the frame with my 1/8" handheld hole punch and wove a piece of wide certainly celery grosgrain ribbon through the holes, attaching it at the back of the whisper white background. I punched the corners of the background layer with the ticket corner punch and then adhered the background layer to the bashful blue card front. As a final touch I punched 1/8" ballet blue circles with the handheld punch and adhered them in the corners of the card front.

If you don't remember what the inspiration looked like, here it is. So what do you think? Did I do a good job? And are you willing to take up my challenge and create a pillow CASE of your own?

I love the colours (they are actually the colours of my son's nursery!), and you have given that flower from Older and Wiser its own name in my book! For a minute I thought, "Did she use a non-SU! stamp???" :) TFS!
