Pinwheel Thank you

As my semester drew to a close, I wanted to make sure that my master teacher knew how grateful I was for her mentorship. She was simply amazing and I learned so much from her! This card was simple and fairly quick to put together. I started with the words using the THIS AND THAT from from Lettering Delights (link in the sidebar). I added the "you" using a different font (I will have to search and add it in the comments as I can't remeber off hand). I then decided that pinwheels would be the perfect Spring adornment. I did purchase one from Silhouette Studio Designs, but it was two dimensional and didn't give the card the punch that I wanted. I ended up coming up with my own version. I welded the "handles" to the card base. In order to give them enough stability to hold the wieght of the pinwheels, I place a strip of chipboard on the backside of each handle. It worked like a dream. Yet another oooh and ahhhh card!
