Inspired by Poppy Pillows

This week's CAS challenge is to use JC Penney kids' bedding as your inspiration. I chose this pillow as my starting point. The cute flowers really caught my eye, so that became my focal point. Then I rounded the edges to mimic the shape of the pillow. I think it turned out pretty cute.


Stamps: Garden of Life (PTI)
Paper: Pretty in Pink, dp (SU & PTI)
Ink: Certainly Celery

Accessories: Nestabilities Blossom, brad (Making Memories)
