So excited to share this card and introduce you to the Creative Belli challenge blog. Early last week, my friend, Robin Kirkpatrick, asked if I was interested on being the Guest Designer for this week. Well, of course I said yes. So, I set to work on my card for the following sketch.
I flattened it a bit and stretched it a bit, but all and alI stuck with the original elements. I made the pinwheels by modgepodging(This is a word, I am sure of it.)two layers of the printed digital papers I used for this card. Then I cut the squares using Nestibilities. I found a pinwheel pattern on-line and used it as a guide for where to make the cuts so the squares became pinwheels. I used a glue dot in the center to hold the corners, poked a hole in the center and used the brads to secure everything together. I think I should have distressed the pinwheel edges more before I assembled them, but oh well.
The theme this week for the CARDS blog challenge is Fourth of July, so I hope to use all my scraps to pull together another card by Friday.
I want to thank everyone at Creative Belli for having me this week and for hosting such great challenges. Stop by and try your hand at the sketch. Also, go visit Robin at her blog, Robin's Rubber Room, and see what great things she does with her cards.
