A Moving Pinwheel and Throwdown Colors

I finally used my pinwheel die to make a pinwheel.  


I've used it before, to make a faux windmill.






I used a mini craft stick for the "handle".


My border is from my Growing Wild grass stamp which I stamped multiple times with Memento's New Sprout and Rich Cocoa ink (twice...once with full application and again for a lighter look).  


It's on a strip to look interesting...I wasn't going for a realistic look.



The pinwheel is attached with a brad to the card, so it can turn however you choose.


I count that as movement...



My colors were inspired by Color Throwdown's 155.

Thank you for peeking in. ;)
