 Sweet and Simple for today! The challenge was In the Air, maybe I stretched it a bit with the pinwheels... At first I planned on birds or butterflies, but then came across this fun image and felt like playing with it! I used paper from Basic Grey's Collection "Mint Julep" which is full of happy prints and coordinating solids. I paper pieced the pinwheels. The top solid layers are popped up with a little dab of silicone under each flap.

I added a white liner on the inside and a little bit of paper. I stamped the Summer Afternoon sentiment and added that inside. This would make a fun anytime card. Final card size is an A2. 


  1. Such a fun creation. Love the pinwheels and the way you have used the twine.
