Pinwheel Fireworks

 Today I'm joining in the The Inkspirational challenge - Fireworks.  Living in the US, I think of fireworks as being for the 4th of July and New Years Eve,  but now fireworks are often set off at  the Olympics Opening Ceremonies and at football games.  

And whenever they are lit off - it is a CELEBRATION!

Here's my fireworks card.

My card is a small 3 3/4" square size, die cut with a retired die from Papertrey Ink (Noted: Scalloped Square).  Instead of actual fire works, I used pinwheels to represent them!  (Again using retired Pinwheel Party dies and stencils from PTI).  I adhered the blue/pink pinwheels directly to the card base and popped the pink/red pinwheels up on foam dots.  I added the same color Enamel Dots from Altenew to the centers of all four pinwheels.  The sentiment is Small Talk Stickers/Occasions from Tim Holtz/Idea-ology it's up on foam dots as well.

I'm linking my card to:

Because you introduced this as fireworks, I didn't see pinwheels. It works - they are now fireworks. Wonderful card. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas for our November "Anything Goes" challenge.
