Friends with Flair ~ Unity Inspiration Color Challenge

Oh wow, Unity has started a new monthly Inspiration Challenge!

The choice is yours, you may use the sketch or the colors to create a card, layout or mixed media project...and boy, are the entries gorgeous!

I'm linking to both that challenge and Friends with Flair this week...and hopping around to look at the other entries is leaving me in awe of the talent that people have!

I chose to use the colors as inspiration for this card ~ although some ideas are starting to form for the sketch...we'll see if I can make another project in time to enter for this month!

I love the red and turquoise, and the picture of the pinwheel really caught my fancy, plus the stripes on the I sponged on some sky over a few cloud masks, then turned to my silhouette cameo to cut some pinwheels from patterned paper. I love how I can resize the file to any size I want. So fun!

I trimmed some scraps for 'sticks', then found the perfect sentiment to fit. 

Don't the pinwheels make you happy too? I didn't like the look of the plain white as the reverse side of the pinwheel, so I mirrored the pinwheel in the software and cut from a second paper then just formed the pinwheel with the two papers wrong side together, easy peasy!

 All in all a pretty, happy card that will hopefully brighten the recipient's day!
