In many of the manufacturer pages, I've seen a slew of pinwheels. I guess pinwheels are the new owl (which I still love). Pinwheels are pretty easy to make, so I decided to use them in my interpretation of this week's Card Patterns sketch.
Pinwheels look super cool when made with double sided paper, but I was also trying to use this sketch for the Clearsnap color challenge - eggplant, olive and aqua. I wasn't sure about the color combo, but now that the card is done, I actually really like the combination. I'll have to jot this one down for future use!
Because I didn't have double sided paper that fit this color scheme, I used some versamark to create a muted pattern on one side of the paper. I used the Happy Birthday word block from My Sentiments Exactly and voila! Next time I might try inking the stamp with color (or embossing it) - would have added some extra pop.
This card is a great way to use up scraps! Each of my pinwheels is made from a 2x2 inch square.
