You Mean the Whirl To Me - CTD #138

It's Color Throwdown time!!! Today's colors were chosen by my bestie, Tammy Hershberger and I love 'em! Now! At first, I'm going, what is she thinking?!! But once I found this paper would work, it was all good, LOL! It's more of a Not Quite Navy shade, but that's *navy*, right?? Says so right in the name ;-)

We have a sponsor today, our very own Laura Pryor, of Lil' Inker Designs is giving away one die and stamp set of the winner's choice: Sentiment Flags or Pinwheels.

I'm using her new die and stamp set, Pinwheels, as the focal image on my card today. I love this thing! So cute and so easy to assemble--Laura has a tutorial on her blog if you want to see how it works.

So, I think my card is pretty easy to figure out--that pinwheel is definitely the star of the show. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of patterned paper cut out with Lil' Inker Designs Flag Sentiment die--I use it A LOT--just love it!! What an adorable sentiment--you could use this for so many people in your life!!

 I did some crazy stitching and added some buttons and twine to finish it off. Sweet!

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD138 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week!
