So Swirly

This card was made for a special friend, for her birthday. We had a great time at her party with lots of laughs. And it was really good to catch up with friends I hadn't seen for a while. For her card I used Kraft card stock. I love the natural colour and it combines well with almost any other colour. I've combined it here with Blush Blossom. I always use the wheel guide when I use a wheel, so I can get a straight line. The So Swirly wheel has some dots in the pattern, so on this card I punched them out with the 1/4" circle handheld punch for a lacy look. I used the corner rounder punch to make the scallop edge. The lovely bird is from the Spring Solitude stamp set and the words from the Happy Everything set.
