You Are My Whirl

Here's my card for the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch.  I pulled out my Playful Pinwheels set from Waltzingmouse Stamps for this simple and sweet design.

You Are My Whirl card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps
I stamped the pinwheel outline on white cardstock, then filled in the outline using the matching stamps with blue and green inks.  The pinwheel was adhered near the top of an aqua card base using foam tape.

I represented the vertical line along the left side of the sketch with a large clear crystal flourish.  I cut the flourish apart and tucked one end of each of the pieces underneath the pinwheel.  I'm hoping the flourish helps to give the card a feeling of movement.  To match the sparkly flourish, I added a large clear crystal to the center of the pinwheel.  I stamped the set's "you are the whirl" sentiment at the bottom of the card in blue ink to finish the design.

Materials Used:
Playful Pinwheels stamp set (Waltzingmouse Stamps); Aquamarine and Lemon Grass inks (Avery Elle); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko); Aqua Mist cardstock (Papertrey Ink); clear crystal flourish (Want2Scrap); foam tape
