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!
