Pillow CASE Sunday Challenge

ETA: Well, here it is. This Sunday's Pillow CASE card. Actually, if you look at the inspiration ensemble (second photo), I actually kind of CASEd 2 pillows. The green and white striped pattern in the background is from one set of shams and, of course, the flowery pattern is form the other shams.

Just for a little more contract I added some Rose red mats and some regal rose wide grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment from Amazing to Zany is stamped on whisper white in rose red and punched out with the 1 inch circle punch, which is layered on a large oval punched out of pretty in pink and a designer label punched out of rose red. I stamped the main image on whisper white with chocolate chip and regal rose markers (using the direct to stamp technique) and colored everything in using rose red, regal rose, pretty in pink and gable green stampin' write markers. The card base is also gable green.

I love the card as much as I loved the inspiration bedding ensemble and i really loved being able to achieve this look so easily with my stampin' write markers. If you want your very own set of markers in the awesome carrying caddy join my marker club! Check out the details here or contact me for more information.

They say the definition of being crazy is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, so I guess I have to be a little bit crazy to keep posting a Sunday challenge when no one else besides me wants to play along, right?

Well, either I'm crazy or I learned how to play well by myself growing up without any siblings or a little bit of both, but I'm having too much fun with these challenges and I found way too many cool pillows to inspire me to stop now. So here's the bedding ensemble that I will use as my inspiration for this week's card. Watch this post for a new upload tomorrow!
