Denim Pinwheel Sketch

This week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog is a most awesome sketch by DT member, Tosh Leyendekker!  I know for sure that I will want to make more cards with this lovely layout...


And here is my card...


Used Anya's Playful Pinwheels set and some papers from October Afternoon.  The denim, bandana, woodgrain, and ticking stripe prints are from the Sasparilla collection, and the kraft dot is from an older collection.  The cute ruler strip is actually washi tape from "wishywashi.com!  Did a little selective inking with the sentiment from the set.  I was covering the original sentiment with the pinwheel, so I decided to re-ink the "be" and add it over the top of the "happy" :)  After my pinky-peach blog party card, I was just dying to use my tried and true red and navy blue (hey, that rhymes!)  I just never tire of these colors on a card!

Your turn to make some magic with Tosh's sketch!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, July 27th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected winner who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Playful Pinwheels, Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Kraft, Rustic White, and patterned papers from October Afternoon
Ink:  Memento Espresso Truffle, SU Not Quite Navy, Tim Holtz Antique Linen, PTI Vintage Cream
Other:  twine, wooden button, ruler washi tape

Kelly! I love this - it is so playful and fun - your red white and blue pinwheel is fab. I like that you clued us in to your "oops" mistake - but we would never know if you didn't say! Looks perfect to me!

great card, Kelly! Like the colors, red, white and blue! In the Netherlands we use often the colors, because they are in our flag too. Love from Holland.

Hey Kelly!! Happy Summer:)!! Are you as dry as a bone up there like us?!! We have enough wind right now to blow your adorable little windmill right off the page and all the way to my house!!:) That would be fine cause I would find a spot to keep your sweet treasure until you came to visit to get it back;) Love the denim, and ruler and every warm country detail.

I adore this, Kelly! I love the patterns you've chosen - the red and blue pinwheel looks great with the denim! The button in the center and the little bow on the stick are wonderful little finishing details. This is perfect!
