Buttons and Bows

This card is for Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge #6 found here. This week's challenge is to create something with buttons and bows. I tried making a pinwheel card after finding the directions here. All the papers came from a $1 store paper pack, and I cut strips in the printed papers that all match the pale green polka dot paper. I used a scrap of lavender card stock and a Martha Stewart doily punch for the border. The sentiment is from SU! and the ribbon and button were from my stash. I like making these pinwheels and will surely make some more again!
Happy Tuesday everybody, and thanks for dropping in :)

Carol - it looks so delicate! Before I saw your sentiment I thought it would make a perfect baby shower card! Guess it still could for the expecting momma's thank you's... Kathy
