Whirly Twirly Birthday

I wanted to try out my new pinwheel die cut from Stampin' Up as I have been seeing quite a few cards posted with it. I wanted to keep the card simple as I need some quick cards for my stash. I am loving the bright colours, however as I mentioned in my previous post I am not a white background girl, but I decided to give it another whirl. Lol! The card is quite 3D so not one to send in the mail but a cute card that can be hand delivered. I may make a few more of these as it is a nice way to use up some scraps. The strips of designer series paper are cut to 6/8" x 3" and are in Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is stamped in Tempting Turquoise.

I am sumbiting my card to the SU-Only Challenges Blog. This weeks challenge was to use a new toy from the Spring Mini Catalogue. My new pinwheel die cut fullfilled the challenge nicely!
