An Ombre Challenge

     Cath has some great challenges over in the Moxie Fab World this month. I created this card for the Ombre Challenge.
     I made the ombre border using Fiskars' new pinwheel punch. The rebel in me is always looking to use my punches for purposes other than those for which they were intended. Using a variety of shades of purple cardstock, I overlapped and interlocked the flat pinwheels. Once I had them together, I ran the strip through my Xyron sticker maker and adhered them to my card. 
     The sentiment is from Fiskars Friends Forever Quotes collection. I used ColorBox's chalk in Wisteria which matched my lightest purple exactly.
     I have another border to show you that I make with this same punch. I'll get that card up one day soon.
     Thanks so much for stopping by.
