PB-Inspired Baroque

Well, I don't normally get a catalog inspiration, but this morning I was flipping through the newest Pottery Barn catty and was struck by a new organic bedroom set. I loved its plays on whites & neutrals, the texture, the classic simplicity. So, I translated it into this card. The scanner doesn't pick up the textured white c/s, but it's there. I paper pierced down the left side, next to Kraft ribbon. The designer tag sentiment is from the new Taste of Textiles by SU; the sentiment is embossed white (again - more texture). I really like this card - and will be teaching it at my Stamp-A-Stack this Saturday. Hope you can make it!

Oh my goodness - how lovely! Were you also inspired by the snow outside? I wish I could see it up close. I love that Vanilla hardware. Very elegant, Laurel. Good job!
