Inspired by a Pottery Barn PIllow...again

I'd better make this a quick post.  I have spent waaaaay too much time on the computer today. 

The most recent copy of Pottery Barn's catalog hit my mailbox the other day, and I saw this monogrammed pillow in it:
I thought right away of my clear Anna Griffin stamps.  I used an initial from her collection, and a frame from GlitzDesign's Fancy Frames and came up with this:

I love, love, love the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder from SU, so that became the backdrop.  A few pearls were added to the main image, but otherwise, it's pretty simple and clean.

Thanks for joining me! 


Stamps:  Fancy Frames from GlitzDesigns, initial from Anna Griffin
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Basic Black
Ink:  Basic Black
Other:  Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, pearls from Queen & Co., dimensionals

LOVE the EF you used in the BG and the outlining in the pearls is fabulous! B & W is always so classy. Well done :)

A most beautiful black and white CAS card, Colleen. Love the gorgeous frame and the initial.
To your most recent upload with the tight mat technique, I cannot use an x-acto knife. Any tips? I seem to tear and gap whatever I'm trying to cut. Maybe my blade isn't sharp enough, even though when they are brand spankin' new, I have a hard time. Yours looks great.
