Pinwheel Love

Today's card is for this week's The Cat's Pajamas Tuesday Challenge (TCPTUES162) which is to include fabric. I love fabric and have a drawer filled with fat quarters even though I haven't sewn a stitch in a couple of years now! Once a collector, always a collector I guess. For this card, I used the What a Blast stamp set.  He's new-ish and although I stamped him for an ATC and also the pinwheel portion of the image on last week's TCP Tuesday card, I still consider him as not being used since I hadn't made a full size card yet. I segregate my "I haven't used 'em yet" stamps so that I turn to them first when I start a card. I'm happy that P.J. will be mingling with the rest of the stamp population after today. I stamped him onto Copics X-Press It cardstock swiping away the pinwheel portion of the image. He was colored with Copics after paper piecing his tummy. For the fabric challenge, I fused together two pieces of fabric and then cut out with the Pinwheel Cutups. My Cuttlebug didn't cut all the way through (I think because of all the layers) but the markings were distinct on one side so it was easy to finish them off with scissors. I actually think using fabric for the pinwheel will make it easier to mail. 

I am double dipping on challenges since I also followed the June Sketch for You To Try.
