TAWS: BE Inspired #10: Pillows

It's a big week for The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS).  Yesterday was new release day and today is the BE Inspired challenge!


I was a little hung up on this challenge.  I wanted to create a background with various patterns - unfortunately, I don't yet own the TAWS Background Basics set that would have been perfect.  Even with that, I wasn't sure what I was going to put ON the backgrounds.
Then - the CASology Challenge came to my rescue.  The cue word this week is RELAX and I realized that I was overthinking the Inspiration challenge.  What could be more relaxing than curling up with some soft pillows and simply dreaming?


Dream
I do realize that if you hadn't seen the inspiration photo first with the pillows - you likely wouldn't see "pillows" in my card.  But I still think the overall look is relaxing...I kinda like it!

I am also submitting this to the Simon Says Stamps Anything Goes challenge.
  • Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps Cover-Ups (chevron and dots), Awesome Blossom (flower) and Talk to Me ("dream")
  • Paper: Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, Stampin' Up Whisper White
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Pool Party, Crumb Cake, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip
  • Accessories: misc button, white wool felt, Quickutz wobbly edge square (really old!)
