CARDS Pinwheel challenge

I sure had a lot of fun with these little pinwheels! They are fast and easy to make and really make a fun addition to a cute card. I used Basic Grey Kraft pattern paper for the actual pinwheel, along with the stem of a Q-Tip stained with Colorbox Charcoal Chalk Ink. I wanted to make a really simple card so that the pinwheel was the real focus. I simply stamped Hero Arts clouds background with Aqua Mist by Papertrey Ink. I used Chartreuse paper to make a hill and a little sentiment from Everyday button bits also by Papertrey Ink.

My husband's birthday just happens to be the 4th of July, so here is the card I made him this year.

I created the patterned squares for this card using Papertrey's Polka Dot 2 stamp set, along with PTI's Dahlia set and Sassafras Lass Blooms and Stalks set. The sentiment is from the Everyday button bits set which I really love! I gained inspiration for this card from the July 2010 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. I love it when you see the cover of a magazine and you immediately have hundreds of ideas for cards!
