Pin Wheels

Hi Everyone,
Hope you all having a good weekend, been a quiet day today, bit of shopping and playing out with the kids, but I did find time to make my card for the Less Is More Challenge.  I actually woke up this morning thinking hurray its the weekend and oooh I wonder what Mandi and Chrissie have in store for me today.  And it's a fab sketch...

So many ideas went floating through my head, and I came up with this...


Three pin wheels, I have to say I'm really chuffed with how it's turned out, as they were a tad fiddly.  I've used Craftwork Cards Ice Cream Parlour - Fruit Scoop papers which are double sided and card candi to hide the middles.  I've printed the sentiment in Scriptina font (I love that font!) and three little iridescent stones just for a touch of sparkle.
Hope you like it fellow LIMettes, I'm off to see what fab creations everyone else has come up with.
Bye for now
