Orange dots - birthday card

My friend wanted a birthday card for her daughter. The sun was shining brightly where I live today and this inspired me to use lovely warm sunny oranges and yellows. I had been sat in my garden earlier just watching the breeze blowing my washing around, I find this always relaxes me, strange I know! This gave me the inspiration to make some pinwheels for the embellishments which I just adore.

The cardstock and papers are from Anna Griffin's range, brads were from my stash. I glued two pieces of A4 patterned paper together then traced out the pinwheels using my Anna Griffin templates. I trimmed the 12x12 dotty cardstock down to fit a spare envelope that I had.

Simple but effective and very cheery. Hope you all like it. xx
