PTI Day #10...interactive cards.

Good afternoon!  Papertrey Ink issued a challenge today to make an interactive card.  I had also seen some pinwheels on Pinterest the other day and thought that would be a fun element to add to my card today.  I started with some Echo Park background paper and took some Aqua Mist ink and added it to the green side.  Cut a 3" square and snipped almost to the center from the tips.  Folded the tips to the center and added the button.  Die cut a piece of Raspberry Fizz background paper and mounted the pinwheel to it.  There is a "Happy Birthday" greeting under the tear-away strip. 
Orange Zest, Leaf Green, Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise and Raspberry Fizz is my color pallet.  Meduim Scallop Border was used to make the bottom border.  I used a sewing marking wheel to make the perforations for the tear-away strip.  I might need to make a few more interactive cards today.
Later, Sentimentally Sue.
