Creative Challenge with Pinwheels & Purple Posy Handmade Card

Time for me to share a handmade card creation from a design challenge!  I love these challenges because it gives me a great way to create and have fun doing it.  I also love to see what others come up with too!

This challenge came from the Global Design Project and this week was a CASE Challenge from card the designer Kerstin Kreis!  Pinwheels and polka dots were so much fun to incorporate!

Drum roll for the result please….

I used a mixture of Stampin’ Up  products for this one but I wanted to showcase the Purple Posy colour, which is one of my favourite In Colours.

The background is made from the pretty Best Dressed designer series paper and a fun stitched scalloped border die from the Stitched Be Mine dies. The sentiment is from the Daisy Lane stamp set and was heat embossed in Silver.  

I incorporated a fun pinwheel, which was made with vellum paper.  The stitched heart and ribbons were added to creating a nice layering effect.  To tie it all together and add some bling…Rhinestones as my “polka dots” from the original CASE card design!
