Pinwheels and Flowers

This card reminds me of a country summer party with the quilted paper background and the fun little pinwheel with an adorable flower in the middle and the clouds in the background.  I saw the layout design for this card online somewhere and changed the colors and added the flower to the center of the pinwheel.

When I first saw the Flower Trim in the Spring Catalog I wasn't sure I really needed them - UNTIL I started seeing samples done with them that is! They are cute little silk flowers that can be used for all sorts of projects. They are vanilla in color BUT I just took a little sponge dauber into my ink pad and quickly and easily daubed the flower to give it the color I wanted. This card gives me a happy feeling and I can't wait to send it to someone!

Stamps - Bitty Banners ( one of my FAVORITE stamp sets )
Card Stock - Marina Mist, Very Vanilla
Ink - Soft Suede, Calypso Coral - to color the flower
Paper - Tea for Two Designer Series Paper
