Moxie's Vertical Sketch Challenge

A very quick post as I am off to surprise my daughter at her school lunch today!

I decided to play with the Vertical Sketch Challenge over at Moxie Fab World last night, here is the sketch:
And I used some yummy Lawn Fawn stamps again.
Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Versafine; Antique Linen DI
Stamps: Pawn Fawn (Cruising By; Sophie's Sentiments)
Other: Brads (Recollections)

I just turned the sketch upside down.  I paper pieced the pin wheels and added some black brads to the centres.  Some light inking around the edges of the linen cardstock. A strip of patterned paper and that was it!  Now that I am looking at it again maybe it's a little bit plain?!  Perhaps some twine or something wrapped around the patterned strip?  Oh well, it's still nice in it's own way.

Have a great day!

What a great way to rotate the sketch. Love the pinwheels and the little swirl you used to relate the sentiment and the pinwheels. Great job.
