Fun with Pinwheels

So I had a totally different card that I made tonight, but I realized that it's in that neutral/no color thing again. So I thought I'd mix things up! Here's a fun card with some color!

Do you remember making those pinwheels in elementary? So fun. Basically you start with a square, score evenly across the square and fold. Fold in the middle and adhere two end together, repeat. And for the record Jenni Bowlin paper works perfectly for this. The paper is really easy to fold.
Stamps: On the Desk (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine)
Cardstock: Regal Rose (Stampin' Up)
Pattered Paper: Pretty Plaid (Jenni Bowlin), Friendly Fern (American Crafts)
Fibers: Black Embroidery Thread (DMC), Black Thread (Coats and Clark)
Punch: Cropodile
