Pin Wheels!

This weeks Make it Monday challenge over at PapertreyInk was to use pinwheels!  I hadn't made anything with this current trend so I thought I would give it a try.  I used my Silhouette to cut them out.  It took me a couple of tries to get them the right size.  I wanted three on my card and they turned out big.  I can't wait to make one using a 12 x 12 piece of paper.  So this is a pretty simple card.  I am totally into using mist right now.  I just spray everything when I'm done.  Can't see the shimmer but you can see the splotches.  I love it.   

Okay after I posted the first card I put it on Papertreys blog and there was a card by Kathy Mc that inspired me to get out my fence die and make two more cards, since I already had extra pin wheels!  I think they are cuter than my first attempt.  Thanks for the inspiration Kathy.

Oh, I do like your cards. The stitching for the stems and on the fence is a nice touch!

FYI-You were sweet to leave a comment on my blog. You may notice it's gone. I had a editing snafu and deleted my post! I wasn't able to republish or get back the comments. I did read it, though! That's so much!

Loving the stitching on the fence!!! What a great detail idea. I also really like the pattern papers on both sides of your pinwheels.
Thank you for the wonderful comment & encouragement you left me :)
