Pinwheels SPINNING for CASology.....

Hello everyone: The Cue Card this week at CASology is SPIN so, I made this card that I'm hoping is CAS enough for this challenge, I admit I went a bit out of the box here for the requirements for this style but I'm going to take a leap of faith and get it in there anyway. Here is my card.


I really tried to keep the embellishments to a minimum but I think that pot might exceed the rules.
This Pinwheel image is from a retired Flourishes set called "Pinwheels and Popsicles", I stamped it directly on my card base with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps, I used only the oil that it's already soaked into the stump, I really didn't need more.  I wrapped a piece of Natural Jute around the pot, I think it looks better than just leaving it plain.  The sentiment is from the same set and it's stamped with SU Rich Razzleberry ink.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.


The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set called "Happy Today" and it's stamped also with Rich Razzleberry ink. 
Here are the pictures of this pretty stamp sets, this first one is from Flourishes.
This next stamp set is from Hero Arts and it was gifted to me by my sweet and dear friend Patti Willey, thank you so much Patti.
This is the Cue Card for the CASology challenge.



Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

    1. Thank you Patti, adding shading with the pencils is really easy, the baby oil blends the colors beautifully. I didn't add any more oil to the stumps, they are soaked enough to still blend.

  7. I agree with Joyce, Maria...I think your card is perfectly CAS! The pot and pinwheels are the main image, there is still lots of white space, and you added minimal embellishments (I do love that twine bow!). So glad you joined us at CASology this week...I love to see your submissions to our challenges!

  9. Brilliant spin on the spin. Wonderful card Maria. I have been sitting here and cant come up with anything original for this one so after spinning my wheels for a while I think I'll have to pass on it..... Or ohh I dont know anyway love your choice.

  10. Thanks Aileen, my first thought for this challenge was to go with an airplane stamp I have but then I remember this set and I just went for it. Now that I see it I wish I would have snipped out the pinwheels and attach them to the panel with a little brad, to late now, but it still looks pretty.
