You Mean the Whirl to Me




This is my first attempt at making a pinwheel...the newest craze in papercrafting! It was so easy using Lil' Inker Design's die (which is currently sold out but due to be back in stock within a couple of days). The colors were inspired by this photo from the Play Date Cafe Challenge. The layout is for the Card Patterns Weekly Sketch Challenge.
STAMPS: Pinwheel Sentiments (Lil' Inker Designs)
PAPER: Stella & Rose Hazel papers by MME, White
INK: Real Red, Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Pinwheel die (Lil Inkers Designs), Baker's twine, Button, Grommet die, Lace.

Wonderfully used with the sketch and colours, Wanda :) The God Rod performance tonite was amazing and I cried from deep within my heart. Huge (((hug))) to you for your tears.
