Summer Theme

So anything summery we want to see it!
For my creation this week I decided to create something I have admired for a long time!
PINWHEELS!!! Yippeee

I love how this turned out! Pinwheels always cast me back to the beach! Happy Days :D
I did something a bit different for this card though! I thought to myself.... wouldnt; this make an awesome gift! So yes, I created a take-away part!
So yes! You can actually take the pinwheel off and keep it! On your fridge or magnetic board or car! hehhehehe!!

I wanted to put the magnetic on the card underneath so it didn't show but unfortunately it wouldn't stick! Boo Hiss Booo!

None-the-less the surprise is still there!

I took my pinwheel tutorial from this lovely lady's blog.
