Pinwheel Tower Card

Hello stampers,
     Last night I finally had an idea for the Pinwheel Tower Card I saw in a virtual class & in a recent swap I participated in. It's a pretty easy card to make once you figure out what you're going to use & how to layer the card.
     For this card, I decided to use the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set along with the retired Hydrangea Hill DSP. I'm not sure I've actually used this set yet, but thought it would work well with the card. I started with a piece of DSP to form the square part of the card where everything else flips from. From there each section started with a piece of Misty Moonlight Cardstock, along with a piece of DSP on the small side of each flip.
     For this part, I used Basic White Cardstock that I had stamped the lined hydrangea in Memento Black Ink in each corner followed by a solid Highland Heather Ink stamp. The sentiment came from the set & was stamped using Misty Moonlight Ink.
     Next I stamped the full hydrangea onto a scrap piece of Basic White Cardstock then cut out using the Hydrangea Dies. The flower was colored in using Lt. Highland Heather & Lt. Misty Moonlight Stampin' Blends. The leaves & stem were colored using Lt. Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends. This was then mounted on a piece of Basic White Cardstock & a sentiment from the set was added using Misty Moonlight Ink.
     For this panel I used the Hydrangea Hill DSP I cut down some of the leaves at the bottom then trimmed around the flowers until I had it at the height I wanted. This panel can be used for a gift card or possibly money as long as it isn't too thick.
    For the final panel, I used a 1/2" of Hydrangea Hill DSP to line the side of the Basic White Cardstock then used the soon to be retired In Your Words Stamp Set with Misty Moonlight Ink.
