Pinwheel Card - Aqua with Yellow

I had fun making this card, my first pinwheel, with the help of a very easy-to-follow pinwheel tutorial from Sheryl's Crafting Corner. Thank you, Sheryl!

The card stock is Paper Source peacock (dark turquoise) and Papertrey Ink lemon tart (yellow), Hawaiian shores (medium aqua), and aqua mist (light aqua base layer.) I drew the stripes on the yellow squares with Copic markers B01 and B05. The sentiment "Celebrate!" is computer-printed with dark turquoise ink in "Lucida Calligraphy" font.

Inspired by today's "Anything but Pink" challenge for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (046a)

Thank you Sheryl - I really appreciate your leaving a comment for me. The card would never have happened without your tutorial.
