Since summer life is slowing down and time for starting school is drawing close I decided I can take some time a few days a week and make a card. So today I made the time to do the Sketch challenge. I knew before I started that I wanted to use the designer brads in the center of the flower punch. When I was dusting my poor ignored stuff yesterday I saw the Tag Punch Die and so when I saw the sketch for today I knew I could incorporate that in to the card. I think the top looks like the wind is blowing around the pinwheel...lol. To do the pin wheel I stamped and cut out the dotted and solid and then offset layered them. For the border across I wanted it to be Espresso but it needed some design, so I ran it through the Big shot with am impression folder and then layered it on a flat piece and it was the exact effect that I wanted. I figured since I was going for a breezy calming effect that a banner for the sentiment would fit the layout great.
