So, after winning the make-it monday gift certificate for the last card that I entered I have some new-found confidence. I create so many cards and layouts and need to get better at posting and commenting on all the inspiration I find on the papertrey ink forum and the talented people who share their work. It is so wonderful to have a community of people to share our creativity with. On that note, I just loved the simple fun spring look of these pinwheel embellishments on Ashley's video. She has such a great delivery with her clear and specific directions. This was a fun card to make, but it gave me a bit of a headache in the layout of it. The pinwheel was easy...I just could not pull it altogether. I went with Raspberry Fizz, Harvest Gold and Stamper's Select White for my colors. I embossed the layer of Raspberry Fizz cardstock with the diagonal stripe impression plate (my first impression plate from PTI and I LOVE IT). I used Fabulous Frames in Harvest Gold and die cut the frame and stamped in the coordinating ink. I used Simply You sentiment set and embossed in detail white the YOU and the "are pretty amazing" is from the same set in raspberry fizz ink. I used the raspberry fizz gingham paper and a harvest gold button threaded with bakers twine to finish off the pinwheel embellishment. To ground my card I stamped polka dot basics 2 with harvest gold on a strip of white cardstock. Hope you like it, I wanted to work with a bright color combo!
