A Pinwheel Celebration


I made my card for this week's Color Challenge on Split Coast.  Karen Barber was our color hostess and her choices for us: Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzazz. Pretty combo huh?!

I made this fun pinwheel using a mix of the challenge colors on these pretty patterned papers.

I totally cased this design from my good stampng friend Charlene who cased it from Karen Dunbrook! Don't we just love sharing ideas in the paper crafting world??!!

For my pinwheel - I used four 1 1/2" squares - cut them in half corner to corner, rounded the corners then lined them up as shown! My card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".  I adhered them with foam tape How fun is this? A great party card isn't it - you could celebrate anything with this fun design!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit Sentiments
Paper: White, Pure Poppy - PTI, Irish Eyes Bazzill Basics, DP Cosmo Cricket - Social Club & Togetherness Mini Decks
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: foam tape, vintage button & narrow silk ribbon - PTI, corner rounder - EK Success
