Okay, about the card. ;) Aren't these summer sets super fun!!! Today we get to share with you a set designed by Waltzingmouse's very own, uber talented Anya Schrier!! I'm in serious love with this Playful Pinwheel set. It's just super charming and oh so versatile!! Truly!!

My card is based on this week's Waltzingmouse sketch. I thought the pinwheels would be fun to place in a flower pot, so I diecut one using the Spellbinders Flower pot die using Kraft Core. I then ran it through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder, and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.

For the pinwheels, I took some watercolor paper and did a brown colorwash over it to give them a rustic feel. I then stamped the different patterns over the colorwash.

I used Bitty Banners and the Pennants die for the little sentiment banner.

That's it for my project today. Next stop is the super sweet and talented Becca.

Good morning,the colors in your card reminds me of my grandmother's old farm. When we were kids we would go to her place for the summer, and there would be all these barn like buildings that we could explore (even though we weren't suppose to be in them).We have such fond memories of that long ago time. TFS.
