A Windmill That Was a Pinwheel and a Plaid Dad Card

     Mark's Finest Papers Challenge #56 calls for tone on tone cards with the main image popped up.

     My popup is cut from a pinwheel die from Lil Inker.  I mounted the blades on a lighthouse to give the illusion of a Windmill, but only used 4 dies instead of the 6 a pinwheel would have.  I then fringe cut the blades to make them more masculine..the curve is really cute, but thought it might be too cute for this card I am giving to my Dad.

    The image is from ODBD Keep My Lamp Burning.  Can you tell how much I love this set?  It is so versatile!  I have wanted to make a windmill for awhile now, and originally bought this set to do that!  Since I incorporated plaid, I am entering a second card in ODBD Plaid or Gingham challenge.

Thanks for peeking in today! ;)

Supplies I used:

ODBD Keep My Lamp Burning, Lil Inker pinwheel die, Vellum quote from quote book, Staz On Ink, Scor Pal, MS Fringe Scissors
