Thankful For All You Do

Hello Friends!  I decided to play along with the Simon Says Stamp Challenge again. The challenge is 


And here is my card…

I finally used my  pinwheel die and cloud embossing folder from Stampin’ Up!  Clean and simple. Fun and playful.  After embossing the white card stock, I stamped the greeting. I am really loving the larger sentiments lately. Next, I matted the focal panel with a touch of blue on the sides.  I used the scraps from the blue card stock trimmings to create the ‘sticks’ for the pinwheels. Then I adhered the pinwheels with dimensional adhesive. I added a few rhinestones for interest. Could be rain drops? I don’t know! But, I wanted some sparkle on this card and that was the best way to get it! As I’m typing this I’m remembering that I have rhinestone brads! Ack! Next time…

Anywho…that’s all for me today. Have a great Thursday! Thanks for stopping by.

That cloud embossing folder is so cool! It's absolutely perfect with your colorful pinwheels. And the large sentiment is a great design element. It is well balanced with the height of the pinwheels.

Oh my goodness, how fun is this, Barb! Love the pinwheels (great papers) and that cloud background is so cool. Adds a great texture without it being overpowering. Love your bit of bling. Fantastic card!
