Sneak Peek: Pillow Talk from TAWS

The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS) is coming out with a fun border set on March 1st.  There are three borders and each is entirely different.  I went for an elegant look with this border.  And as an added bonus - the sentiment comes from another new March 1 set - Words to Live By!

To My Friend
Here's a close-up so you can see the sparkle!!

You will have to check the other sneak peeks of this set on the TAWS blog because each is very different.  And while you are at - look back two days to see the other sneak peek sets - THEN come back tomorrow for a blog hop with all of the sets!!
I used the colors from Sunday Stamps.

And the layout from The Paper Players.

This card is so pretty. I love that gorgeous border! It makes a lovely accent and would be a great background.

Kim - another stunning card that showcases the new set beautifully! I'm so glad you share your creative artistry with all of us; your cards teach me so much about different ways to 'interpret' the inspirations, whether through sketches, colours, combining patterns...the works. Thank you so much for sharing and 'motivating'. Have a wonderful 'sparkly' day!
