Pinwheel Birthday Card - Seize the Birthday and Seize the Sketch #12

Hello Delightful friends and family!
Just getting this in under the wire for the challenge at Seize the Birthday (use Chevrons) and I was too late for the  Seize the Sketch #12.  But I want to give credit where credit is do.
Got to make this really brief, it's past my bedtime and I've got to work at the lss in the morning plus tomorrow evening I'm teaching our ladies Bible study.  Busy, busy...

Stamps : Pinwheel is from Taylored Expressions (Delightful Day) and the sentiment is Paper Smooches (Sentiment Sampler set)
The Designer Paper is My Minds Eye (My Girl - 6x6 pad); Card Stock: Bazzill and DCWV.
Ink: Memento, Tuxedo Black; 

I used lots of Liquid Pearls (Ranger) to embellish the pinwheel and flags.  I gave the pinwheel more dimension by stamping it twice, paper piecing and fussy cutting them out and then used 3D Dots (EK tools) to pop it up.  The flags were created by taking a 3/4" x 2" strip, folding it over adhering them with Zots and punching each with the Envelope Punch Board (WR Memory Keepers).
Darice Natural Hemp Cord finishes the banner.
I must be honest this is not my favorite card and the first one ended up in the trash/recycling! Not sure why I had such a difficult time with the sketch, maybe if the pinwheel was positioned lower??  I was trying to make it for a little girls birthday party that Addy is going to and thought the pinwheel would be a cute idea.  Oh well....

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!  Congrats to the Seahawks and their fans, they were very impressive!!  (Personally I'm a Niner's fan living here in northern California!) Condolences to the Bronco's and their fans - they had an awesome season though.

Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, and apply your heart to my knowledge;  Proverbs 22:17
