Firework Spinner Card








Hello everyone! Here is a card that I made for several challenges. I cut the flower from Simply Charmed at 6 inches. I cut the 2nd layer twice so I could get the blue center and the center circle twice. I mounted the flower base to a brad loosly so it would spin after I attatched it to the base of the card. The second center layer I stamped with a Peachy Keen face stamp and mounted that to the brad using a glue dot, this way the face always stays the same while the flower part spins. I stamped the stars in the corners with a Stamp'n Up stamp and used my white gel pen for all the stitching. I tried to take a picture of it while it was spinning so you could get the full effect but it didn't show very well. It just turned out blurry. I wish you could see it spin because it looks like a big firework...at least to me it does.
These are the challenges that I am entering this card into

1. M.A.G. Challenge By The Page- Simply Charmed pg. 39 only
2. Crazy About Cricut- Thankful Thursday- Use red, white, and blue
