My Valentine

I saw Mary from Cardz TV's video on a spinner card today
and I had to try it.  I have made them before, but not from the WC cartridge.
Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, 
that is the theme I chose for this project.

I cut the card at 5.5", as did Mary, but I re-cut the scalloped circle
in 1/4"increments to stack them around the circular window, 
and then embossed them all together.  I embossed the card front
to give it all a more elegant look.
I also found the flower image on the WC cart on page 42 
and cut both the icon shapes at 5.5".
The branches are found on page 48 and are cut from glitter paper
at 5.5 and 4.5".  I then trimmed them down to fit the card front.
The larger icon flowers are cut twice, popped for dimension,
and then finished off with a square gemstone.

I tried to give a little more style to the back of the spinner
wheel itself.  I really wanted to cover it, but was afraid it 
wouldn't spin freely if I did.

I used stamps from my collection which include 
for the window images and inside sentiment.
This is a quick card that is elegant with a touch of bling,
and could be used for a man or a woman.

I will be entering this in the following challenges:
Simple Salutations - Use a flower
