Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #56

When I first saw this sketch from AHSC I thought "pinwheels" and this card went thru several stages where I tried many different ideas like little pinwheels, etc. but it just wasn't coming together so I created one big one instead.  

To create this card I used May's special "Free to Be Me" paper packet.  Have you seen this special yet?? To celebrate National Scrapbooking Month, Close To My Heart released this lovely packet of paper and time is running out!  And like most specials once it's gone, it's gone!  This wonderfully fun paper packet is only $5 with a $50 purchase! Ask me how you can get yours today.

To make the pinwheel I used my Cricut Artiste (pg. 50) and cut out the layers at 1/4" increments starting at 1 3/4"

Other products I used are Sweet Leaf CardstockAqua Dots, and Indian Corn Blue Ink.

The bottom scalloped edges were made using my Scallop  Border Punch and the sentiment is from May 2013's SOTM.  This stamp set was also part of the inspiration for this card.

Thank you for stopping by and I truly appreciate your comments.  Follow the link to check out all the great artwork submitted to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I hope you get inspired and decide to come play along!  We would love to see what you create and you might get voted top card of the week! 
Happy Crafting!
