Trend article: Pinwheels & Christmas card

Hi friends.  Last week my second article as Trends editor went up on StampNation.  The article was on Pinwheels, they seem to be popping up everywhere.  I have to tell you that I had so much fun putting this article and samples together.  I also learned a lot about making and creating different pinwheels.  If you want to see more samples and read the article, I encourage you to become a member if you aren't one already.   Click here to learn more about StampNation.

 My card for today is for Merry Monday challenge #51.  This week is a Tic Tac Toe challenge.

I chose red, punches and snowflakes.  This is another great card to mass produce.  It is CAS all the way.  My card was inspired by this amazing card made by Christina.  Thank you for the inspiration Christina. 
I am slowly trying to use up my stash of DSP.  Yes I admit, I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to DSP.  I just hate cutting such beautiful paper.  Anyone else??  :)

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Holiday Lounge DSP
Ink:  Memento Black
Stamps:  Greetings of the Season (SU!)
Accessories:  Snowflake punch, rhinestones
