I am having a month long weekly giveaway to celebrate my birthday, go to this post to leave a comment for your chance at winning. I was inpsired by the stripped pillows and I used the verve stamp set sparkling dreams and a cut above starry die set. I hand painted the stripes using tim holtz distress inks.
