Patriotic Thanks

I finished a really good crime fiction book over the weekend written by Brad Parks. It's a real page-turner with lots of unexpected twists and turns What made it more interesting is that he grew up in this area of VA and used frequent references to local roads, towns, businesses, etc. If you're looking for a good book, I recommend Closer Than You Know! 
 I also squeezed in a quick card for two different challenges.  The Paper Players challenge has us creating a CAS (clean and simple) card which I always struggle with but think there's enough white space to keep the challenge police away - LOL! I'm also using colors for the Sunday Stamps challenge.

I've said it before and will say it again...these pinwheel stencils are just so much fun from The Greetery!

With the Fourth of July coming up soon, I thought the pinwheels would be fun in patriotic colors. Here's what I used...

STAMPS: Written in Ribbons (The Greetery).
PAPER: White, Blueberry Sky, Enchanted Evening, Matte silver metallic (Papertrey Ink/Ink to Paper).
INK: Blueberry Sky, Enchanted Evening, Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy - dye inks by Papertrey Ink/Ink to Paper. 
DIES: Pinwheel Party, Twisted Crepe, Written in Ribbons (The Greetery); Stitched Rectangle STAX (My Favorite Things).
OTHER: Pinwheel Party Stencil (The Greetery).

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!    ~Wanda
