Pinwheels and Balloons

Just a couple of cards I made today using pinwheels and balloons....!

This first one is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #106. I just had to use my new Playful Pinwheels set that arrived this week (and thank you Clare for the extra little package of twine! Much appreciated!). Pinwheels always make me think of summer holidays down at the beach, so I pulled out some nice bright patterned papers for this one. I totally love this sentiment form this set as well! And see that fab new border die? One of my birthday pressies - it's fab!

And my next card is for The Sweet Stop's Sketch Challenge #167 and La La Land Crafts Challenge to use embossing on your card. I embossed the Elegant Bouquet onto Whisper White card and then, using my blender pens, coloured in the stems, leaves and flowers to make a pretty little background. Love how it came out.

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
