Pinwheel Birthday card.

When I saw Mojo Monday challenge sketch #MOJO305  I had to make another birthday card using it.  Just looking at it I got a great idea. 
Happy Birthday Pinwheel
Anything look familiar?  Yea I can't stop using my new banner embossing folder.  haha.
Happy Birthday Pinwheels - saying
Do you see another embossing folder I got recently?  It�s peeking out there under the saying.

Swiss dots are great but I also fell in love with these big dots.  Oh yea.. what do you think about my first attempt at pin wheels?  I don�t know what took me so long to try them out, they are easy peasy.

Finally another Challenge card. Happy Birthday

Well I'm going to try this blogging again but really my heart isn't in it.  I'm sorry fellow bloggers and the few followers I have.  I just don't think it's in my heart.  Lately my heart isn't into much of anything but those are my problems. 
I thought to kick start this off I'd make a card for a couple of challenges.  I haven't entered any challenges in a long time.  I have some birthdays coming up so a birthday card it was.
Happy Birthaday Banner card

Here's a close up of the banner.

Some deets about this very simple card.
For my background I used a new embossing folder from Sizixx (Birds & Banners). 
Isn't it so cute?   I lightly sanded the banners so you can see it, I didn't want it to get lost.
Next I used Hero Arts "You're the best" stamp set. Did some paper piercing, then added a few dimensional pop foam dots. 

Of course I am went to a couple of my favorite blog sites to enter this card.
Addicted to Stamps - Challenge #56 "Anything Goes"
Simon Says - Wednesday Challenge
Inspirational - Challenge #31 "Anything Goes"  

I"m keeping my fingers crossed that I can keep my blogging going. With the holidays, my favorite Halloween, coming up I know I"ll have a lot to show off.
