I want Candy!

Blog candy that is! It's challenge #100 over at A La Card Monkey, and to celebrate, they're giving away blog candy. Look at the loot:

Blog Candy 100th Challenge

Somebody this week is going to win all that! I hope it's ME! Here's the sketch for this week's challenge:

Not surprisingly, the theme is "Celebrate!". Here's my card:

I've been wanting to try a pinwheel for awhile, and this seemed to be the appropriate time. I followed the tutorial on Terry Su's blog here. It was pretty easy once I got the hang of it. I used Play Date DSP for the pinwheel and Twitterpated DSP on the rectangle. The card base is Early Espresso and the other cardstock is Daffodil Delight and Marina Mist (I think). The sentiment is stamped in Marina Mist and I added two bright brads. It doesn't show up very well, but there is Early Espresso baker's twine "attaching" the pinwheel to the banner (both of which are attached with dimensionals).


  1. Very Cute!!! Pretty color combo!!! Thanks for playing along with A La Card Monkey, GD Diane

  2. Your pinwheel looks terrific! I'm glad you were able to follow my tutorial. I didn't catch the twine until you wrote about it. Thanks for playing along!

  3. Great card Marie. Your pinwheel looks so festive and so do the happy colours you used for your card and DSP! TFS.

  4. Wow that is really cool how you did that Pinwheel! Great color combo too! Thanks for joining us on our 100th challenge this week!!


  5. What a cool pinwheel! Good luck!

  6. Love your pinwheel and the DSP you used for it.
