JustRite Friday Challenge #048, Take Two

     After seeing a "plethora" (love that word!) of pinwheels in blog-world this week, I decided that might work on my challenge card.  The dimensions I found on an SU site were much too big, but the first two punches I pulled off my shelf fit perfectly for a tiny pinwheel (Blue Marvy square and a Fiskars small squeeze punch).  So I made a second card with a pinwheel rather than a flower embellishment and added some ribbon woven through the Spellbinders die. 
     These cards are an example of how I have actually grown as a crafter.  There was no way I could mix prints or not be symmetrical long after I began pasting up cards.  Buying paper in pads with coordinating prints put together somehow gave me permission.  There's hope for me yet!  I still need to learn to color in the lines!

JustRite Friday Challenge #048

     Well, this one drove me crazy.  I can't tell you how many different rectangles I stamped and cut and embossed before I was finally happy with that part.  It also took several flowers, cut and inked, before I decided to use this one.  I say it drove me crazy, but in a good way.  :o)  How can it be anything but fun when one is playing with one's toys:  Big Shot, Spellbinders, JustRite Stamps, paper, cardstock, ink and glue?  It's a lot like baking.  I make a big mess, but do so enjoy getting acceptable results!
