Pinwheel gift bag made using the Artiste and May stamp of the month!

Hello, friends!

This is my 1000th post! I cannot believe it! When I started this blog many moons ago I never dreamed I would still be soldering on and have as many wonderful people visiting on a daily basis! Thank you thank you thank you for your daily patronage. YOU ARE APPRECIATED AND LOVED!

Today's project is made using the Artiste cartridge, the May stamp of the month, and the Dream Pop paper pack. Who knew these three things would work so well together!?!

This would be perfect for a little one, as a party favor at a kid's party, or just a fun summer gift! I just love this color combo. You cannot look at these colors and not smile!

As you can see I stamped patterned paper (aqua and orange pieces). I was worried about how it would turn out, but I love it actually! I will do something similar again.
I also added adhesive springs to the pinwheel to give it added dimension and whimsy.

This week's prize is the Simple Cards cartridge!
