Go Spin

So last night I'm showing my wiseacre husband the funky card I made yesterday and he says, "I saw it on your blog & was going to post a comment, What, it doesn't spin or anything?!" Ha ha ha.

Not being one to turn down a challenge, a made the same card again (sort of; this time I used this colourQ combo and flipped the sketch). This time, the flower pieces and the sentiment move, thanks to tiny brads.

I couldn't help but whip out my new white embossing powder for the card itself, and that went so well that I made cherry-on-poppy and white-on-white flowers for a little something extra.
