It's a Good Day

Happy Sunday, my friends. I wanted to pop in here today to share a card made with this week's Waltzingmouse card sketch.

This week's sketch was inspired by the always-fabulous Sandie Dunne.

Here is what I made, turning this sketch into a square card.

Playing with my Pinwheels set the other day encouraged me to set some time aside to use it more. I started this card by choosing the colors I wanted to work with. I knew that I wanted to use patterned paper for the rectangle on the left of the sketch, so I picked my colors from that. Then I used the small outline and solid pinwheel to create a background design. Just fun to make.

We would love to have you play along with this week's challenge. Visit the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog to load up your project and see all the fabulous inspiration from the Mischief Makers.

I also wanted to remind you that the WMS Blog Party for July will be on Tuesday, July 17th. This month's theme is the great outdoors, and you can find all the details on the WMS Blog. Hope to see you there - have a great day!

  2. Ohhh..a whole 'mother way to use those pinwheels!!! Love it! Colors are perfect!

  3. You made this easy and proved to me that I can make something gorgeous without cutting out the pinwheels! Love the colors and the fun nostalgic feel to your card... that big red button is the perfect accent - I LOVE THIS!!!

  4. A really pretty card. Sort of a pastel version of the stars (pin wheels) and stripes. Very clever.
