  6. VERY clever, Kara! And believe it or not, reminiscent of my first attempt at a Blog Hop card (the pillows). You handled it MUCH better than I did and my hat is off to you! Each one is a gorgeous representation of a pillow in the picture!

  7. Beautiful Kara!! Wow, each one so unique and special. The ones that most stand out to me are the ones using stripes of cardstock - great idea! -, and the many flowers stamped with the saddlestitch ribbon around the middle one - so lovely, such a fun tiny tag! Great job on the challenge!
