Wishing for Warm Weather

Is anyone else craving warm weather besides me? I have some new yummy chipboard (Blackboard actually) by Cosmo Cricket and had to break it in! I covered the pinwheel image with printed paper -- sanded -- and then added dark ink to the edges. I was sort of at a loss because I needed "something" to use as the base of the pinwheel. And then... a light bulb moment. A Drinking Straw!

I stamped the red panel with the Pretty Pattern Background image from CHF. If you look closely, the image mimics the shape of the pinwheel perfectly! :) I love it when things come together like that!
