Spring at The Hybrid Chick Card Caravan Challenge

I'm hosting my first Card Caravan Challenge at the Hybrid Chick this weekend.  I wanted to start with something easy, so I picked a Spring theme.  When I saw Pinwheel by Wishing Well Creations, I knew it was just what I wanted to use for my card.  I was inspired by the digital elements to create my own pinwheels, so I printed the patterned papers on both sides, cut 2" squares and folded them up.  I stapled the centers and then sewed buttons to cover the staple.  This kit is just perfect for little boy stamps, so I chose S.W.A.L.K. Best Pals available at Crafter's Companion.  I stamped the image on Make It Colour paper and colored it with Spectrum Noirs.


I had enough pinwheels to decorate the inside too.  Isn't that little frog cute?


I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Allsorts #150 - buttons and thread
