Midway Post Challenge #30 at Open-Minded Crafting

Hello again 
to another beautiful Saturday.
Well this week has certainly been a trying but interesting one.
Lets just say I've very glad I have my crafting to turn to,
otherwise I am quite sure my sanity would have departed along time ago.

My darling partner has been called to work on his days off to cover
for his counterparts holiday so that comes to nearly 2 weeks without a break.
So not many hugs going around as you can imagine.
(And with things going the way they are in my life at the moment I
need all the hugs I can get.)

On a positive note though I might be accepted on a
Part-time Training Course to help me get back to work,
albeit working from home due to my disabilities.

Yet again it is the halfway point of our Challenge
over at Open-Minded Crafting,
and I am here sharing my Inspiration Card with you all.
I wanted to try something this week that I
have admired before but never done,
a Spinner Card

The Theme at
Up In The Air

Our Sponsors are:-

A Day For Daisies who are offering
3 Images.

Jessica Weible Illustrations who is offering

Sentimental Susan who is offering

MilkCoffee Stamps who are offering

My Project for this
week is:-
Over The Rainbow Digi Stamp
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I chose a 17cm Square White Card
I covered the entire of the front of the Card with
Rainbows AquaBlue Digital Paper
(Happy Hearts Studio - Brighter Days)
And to make the Window aperture in the Card
I used the Large Plain Die from the
 Framelit Ovals Collection
(Stampin' Up!) 

Then using Aqua Blue Paper
I Die -cut out a Frame for the Window
using the Large Scalloped Die and the 2nd Largest Plain Die.

Next I printed the Image off twice,

one of them a reverse of the other.
I coloured the Image
using my Promarker Pens.

                                                           Child -            Vanilla (Skin)

                                                                                   Satin (Skin)
                                                                                   Blush (Cheeks)
                                                                                   Sandstone (Hair)
                                                                                   Caramel (Hair)
                                                                                   Duck Egg (Romper Suit)
                                                                                   Cool Aqua (Romper Suit)
                                                                                   Cool Grey 1 (Wings)
                                                           Rainbow -      Poppy
                                                           Cloud -           Cool Grey 1
                                                                                   Cool Grey 3 
                                                           Birds -            Sandstone

Once both Images had been Fussy Cut out,

I placed them both together with a length of 
White Thread down the middle
(so it can spin)
and attached it to the 'Window'.

For the Inside of the Card I started by covering it with the
Aqua Blue Paper.
Then using White Cloud Aqua Digital Paper
(Happy Hearts Studio - Brighter Days)
I Die Cut out 2 Scalloped Ovals,
one with the center removed.

For the Sentiment I use Psalm 127:3
which I hold very dear to me,
as I do truly believe that 
'Children are a gift from the Lord'.

This was printed out on White DC Paper 
and Die-cut out with the 2nd Plain Oval Die,
then edged with the Cyan Promarker.

I added a few embellishments just to finish it all off.
All around the Outside edge and Inside of the Card,
 and also around the Outside Oval Window 
I used Rainbow Edging Strip Peel Offs
Then I added a Rainbow Braid Ribbon 
(Boyes Haberdashery)
across the bottom of the Card.
I also added Holographic White Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to the Wings, on both sides.
And finally I added two 1cm 
Deep Aqua Blue Chipped Rhinestones
to the top corners.
