Fab Friday Sketch Challenge: Pinwheel Fun

Good morning friends and welcome to April, can't believe we're already a quarter of the way through 2013!  This morning I wanted to share my card for this weeks Fab Friday sketch challenge.  I've been making several vintage type cards lately so I decided I wanted to do something different, this time bright, cheery, and clean.  The card has a Daffodil Delight cardbase which is layered with Whisper White and Marina Mist patterned paper from the Polka Dot Parade DSP pack.  The stamped layer uses the Sweets for the Sweet stamp set and the pinwheels are stamped in Daffodil Delight and Real Red before being layered on a piece of Daffodil Delight.  The little red strip along the bottom is actually a punched piece that uses the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch.   

The flag greeting is from the Delightful Dozen stamp set and I sponged along the edges with Daffodil Delight Ink.  The accent on this card is the small pinwheel that I made from a piece of Real Red Polka Dot DSP from the same Polka Dot Parade DSP pack.  I also used the Pinwheel Sizzlit S die and the Big Shot so it's all cut out with the little holes and slits at once.  I just used a Daffodil Delight brad from the Brights Brad pack for the center.  Glue dots made attaching the pinwheel to the card a breeze.
This card is so fun and you could definitely use this sketch for so many different things.  Make your own creation and share it on the Fab Friday sketch blog, it's lots of fun.
Have a great week!

Pin It!
