Monochromatic Mash-up!

I finally got the chance to play along with the fine folks over on The Friday Mashup this week.  They gave us a monochromatic challenge.  The second half of the challenge was to use baker's twine.  I could have added that in, I guess, but I am designing a class using the pinwheel and the Wishes Your Way stamp set.  I am making 3 cards with 3 pinwheels and 3 cards with 1 pinwheel, and I am using each of the 6 sentiments from the stamp set, one on each card.  Since I am keeping each card fairly similar, I chose not to add twine on this one.

The base of this card is pink pirouette.  Then there is a white embossed layer (stamped using raspberry ripple before embossing).  Then I added three pinwheels in darkening shades of pink; one is Pretty-in-Pink (seriously... can anyone believe that THIS is one of the colors SU is choosing to retire?), Primrose Petals, and Raspberry Ripple.  Each one was stamped using the large polka dot background stamp and versa mark.    It's subtle but it's there.

It is making a fine addition to my class!

Thanks for looking!
