CIC212- Di's Digi Designs

It's starting to look a lot like summer. At least when I see pinwheels I am immediately think of childhood summer days.  I remember that sometimes the sticks were filled with little pieces of candy.  These cupcakes make me want to run out and get a pinwheel, maybe attach it to the handlebars of my bicycle.  But I digress...These pinwheels are for this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge CIC212 sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads. 
Rather than running out to buy a pinwheel I went straight to my desk and right there on top was an envelope with some stamped and cut out pinwheel images.  I was getting them ready so I could whip up some cards for all the summer birthdays coming up.  The red, white and blue color scheme is perfect for Memorial Day and 4th of July.  It's amazing how many people I know with birthdays falling on those holidays.  Red, white and blue is perfect for this challenge too.  So what will you create?  There's lots of dies to make pinwheels and plenty of stamps too, but if you don't have any of them there's the color scheme or whatever else you think of when you see the photo.  The sweeties look forward to seeing your cards so don't forget to link them up on the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog.
Here's the deets:
stamp - Close To My Heart "Pinwheel"
ink - Memento "Ladybug" and "Danube Blue"; Stampin' Up "Basic Black"
paper - My Favorite Things "Kraft", "Whip Cream" and "Red Hot" card stock
