Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #22 --- Any Shape Card Except Square or Rectangle

Mo's hostess for March, Cathy Edgar, threw us quite a curve - literally - for this week's Digital Pencil challenge.  No squares or rectangles!  Hmmm.  I've had this lovely "Abby Celebrating" illustration colored for a couple of weeks and thought the action in the swirl of her dress would be great on a round card.  Well, round just wasn't good enough, to I created a pinwheel design that I hope reflects the motion of her skirt.

The card base is a circle and the pinwheel wings are embellished with tiny rhinestones.  Wouldn't this be pretty if it actually spun?  Abby is colored with Copics B21, B24, B27, YG67, G12, Y15, Y17, and E00, E000 for her skin.  The inspiration for the color scheme came from a quilt bedspread I saw in the Penney's
catalog.  I love using these when I am stuck for inspiration. 

And here is a close-up of Abby:
This is such a happy card and I hope it goes to someone and makes their day very happy!  I will put a sentiment on it when I know the occasion.  It could be birthday, Easter, graduation!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to hop over to Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge to see so many magical creations.  You won't find any squares there!
