Creative Knockouts - Birthday Wishes

Hellllooooo everyone! I haven't been having the best week (spent way too much time dealing with a nasty migraine), but I'm feeling better now, and am thrilled to share this with you!  There is a brand new challenge on the Creative Knockouts blog.  This time, the theme is 'Birthday Wishes', and we are sponsored by Imagine That.  

I used their adorable image Pinwheel Crab for my card.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make some pinwheels of my own.  I hope you like it!

The Copics I used for this are: crab - R20, R32, R35, YR24, Y21 & Y32; pinwheel - E31, E35, G000, BG32, BG34, YR000, YR00, YR02, YG00, YG03, YG25, R01, R02, & R08.

The card was made with Bazzill cardstock, and paper and embellishments from October Afternoon (Cakewalk).  For the pinwheels I cut 2 pieces of paper into 3" squares, folded them in half (diagonally), and in half again. I then unfolded it, and cut each crease 3/4 to the center.  I pulled each corner to the center (overlapping) and secured it with a brad.  I then cut a paper straw in half and glued it to the back.  It'll pretty much be impossible to mail this in an envelope, but that's okay - I will just have to hand deliver it to someone special:)  

Thanks for looking, and don't forget to pop on over to the Creative Knockouts blog to enter your 'Birthday Wishes' card and check out the other awesome DT makes!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
