Pin Wheel Card

This is a birthday card that I made for my down line and crafty friend, Kylie. I wanted to use some of the new papers I'd just got, Sweet Shop, for a bright summer look. We all need something to brighten us up at the moment, is summer ever going to arrive?

I used Pool Party and Island Indigo, with the Sweet Shop Speciality Designer Papers to make the pin wheel. I'd made pin wheels at the Jubilee craft event I held at Dock Street, and thought a smaller version would look cute on a card. They're really easy to make. I used a mini brad to hold together the middle, and a cocktail stick for the stem. I tied a piece of the Bakers Twine into a bow around the stick for an extra bit of detail. The Pool Party card stock was embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder, and the sentiment stamp is a sneak peak from the new 2012-2013 Catalogue, called Itty Bitty Banners. I received this set for free, during Sale-a-bration, for recruiting a downline, my friend Kylie.  Stampin' Up! offer such great benefits to demonstrators, it's a great opportunity to get free products for doing something I love.
