Birthday Spin

Digi image:  From the Heart Stamps 'Birthday Candle Birdbrain'.  Sentiments:  PTI 'Birthday Basics' and  'Birthday Bash Sentinents'.  Cardstock:  SU Wild Wasabi and Baja Breeze, Neenah White, DCWV 'Celebration Stack'.  Ink:  Copics and Memento black.
This card's inspiration is I {heart}Sketches #59 at From the Heart Stamps with the twist of creating an interactive card: 
To add a fun 'spin' to this birthday card, I added a wheel that could be spun to show a new sentiment:
The trick as to mount the circle on a center brad.  That was the easy part; the hardest part was sentiment placement.
I really would have liked to use the fun sentiments that accompany this Birdbrain, but my computer skills don't extend to curving digi sentiments!

Here's an 'action' shot, showing the wheel spun in between sentiments so you get an idea of placement:
Fun and (mostly) easy!


  1. Cute, cute, cute!! Love the way you used the spinning wheel in the center. Some photo software (like Adobe PS) allows you to bend the text into an arch, but I am not quite sure how to do that with a jpeg either. Either way, your card is fab-u-lous, girl!! :)

  2. Great card! Love that spin idea! If your like me these cards are played with quite a bit before they are mailed off! Fun colors and papers and a great take on the sketch and the twist! Thanks for joining the sketch challenge #59 at From the Heart Stamps!
