A Pillow Inspired Happy Birthday

Hey!  Today is my first post on the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Design Team!  Andrea is our hostess this week and she picked a super fun picture for our inspiration.  I chose three colors from the pillows in the picture and incorporated a bit of twine from the shop for the fabric aspect.


To start I punched my squares in those coordinating colors from Echo Parks Dots and Stripes Candy Shoppe Collection and stamped/embossed various images from Sweet Stamp Shop's Scootin' By set onto my squares and adhered them in a grid pattern.


Here is a look at the inspirational picture.  I hope you decide to play along with us!  There are always great sponsors with fabulous prizes up for grabs!  This week's prize is from the fabulous Your Next Stamp!


Thanks so much for popping by today!

Lindsay
