This week's Make It Monday Challenge at Papertrey was to make a handmade pinwheel. It's been a long time since I made one, so it was fun to do again. I used pinking sheers to make the slits and I like the little touch it adds to the pinwheel, which is made from a My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad that I love love love, but have never used...still trying to break that habit. :) I used PTI's soft stone cardstock as the base and chicken wire is from PTI's Background Basics: Farm & Barn. My son says "messy" every time he sees the room I craft in whether the door is open or not (and whether it is clean or not), which has been pretty good motivation to de-junk again. That's how I happened upon these really old embellishments from Making Memories that I used on the card.
I made this super bright card using RetroSketches Challenge #51. It's a fun sketch, and I can definitely see myself using it again. The sentiment is from All About You (The Alley Way Stamps). A different font for me, but in a good way and perfect for the teenager this card is going to.
