Here is a Birthday card I created for my daughter's best freinds 12th Birthday. She Loves Pink and anything with zebra print. I actually bought her a Pink overnight bag from Victoria Secret and a huge Zebra Print Pillow for her bed. When I stuffed the pillow into the bag this card idea popped into my head. I love this new Bold Stamp from the new Hostess Sets from the 2011-2012 IB&C!
