The One with the Pinwheel Card

Once in awhile I actually get the mojo to play along with the weekly challenge that I issue on the CARDS blog. Yesterday morning I had a jolt of creative energy and decided to make a pinwheel card for said challenge:
How to: Make a 6" card base from light yellow cardstock. Cut a 6" square of colorful circles patterned paper (all of the supplies are from the last Dear Lizzy line), and cut and fold it into a pinwheel. Cut a 4" square from green polka dot paper and cut and fold it into a pinwheel. Cut a 3" square from blue cardstock and cut and fold it into a pinwheel. Layer all the pinwheels in a staggered formation and attach them with a fabric brad set through a crocheted flower; adhere to the card base. Cut out two leaves from brown cardstock, crinkle them for dimension, then tuck them under the left side of the pinwheels. Tie pink ribbon into a bow and set it near the brad. Add letter stickers around the brad to make a sentiment.

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, fabric brad, ribbon, crocheted flower, adhesive: American Crafts; Letter stickers: Making Memories; Paper cutter, scissors: Fiskars

SO adorable! I saw this challenge and had an idea in my head--just never got around to making it. Going to girls' camp next week so tons of stuff to prepare for that :)
