Pinwheel Birthday Card

Pinwheels are so popular nowadays, 
I thought I see what I could do with one. 
I started with 2.25" square, made the pinwheel, then added a button and some crochet thread. The stem and leaves were cut using the Serenade Cricut cartridge. I cut extra leaves, embossed them by hand, and pop dotted them on top of the original leaves.

The flower pot was cut from the Kate's ABCs Cricut cartridge ... this has become my favorite flower pot!  I inked the edges and pop dotted the layers.
The mat was cut from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge ... I inked the edges added a little faux stitching. 

My sentiment is a stamp from Verve Stamps.

The cardstock I used is from Papertrey Ink and the patterned paper is My Mind's Eye ... isn't it lovely!! Hope you like my little pinwheel card ...

Thanks for stopping by ...
