Thinking of You

Thanks so much for such wonderful inspiration, Stef!!! I have an obsession with pillows so this challenge is right up my alley. Love the two-tone looks with the flowers and the birds in silhouette. I chose my toile blossom set. I used my SU level one patterns pack finally.....a kraft piece. Love the subtle stripes. I used CHF sentiment. I added two MS bird punches and faux brads to finish the look. What do you think?

Oval nesties, 1/4" circle punch wit CE for faux brads, 5/8" black grosgrain ribbon, foam tape, MS bird punch, glue dots
NOTE: I have always loved faux brads as oftentimes I am finished with my card and feel like it needs a little something more. Of course, to add brads as this point would mean taking the card apart, hence the need for faux brads. Cindy Lawrence(One Happy Stamper) adds CE to make her faux brads look more realistic. I did that today, too. Love the look and it just takes a tad....dries fast, too. Thanks for the great idea, Cindy.
