Scrappy Halloween Pinwheel Cards

Just finished these cards for two different swaps. I have seen these Pinwheel Cards many times, but never tried one.  One of the swaps required a pinwheel card, so...I have got to say, I love these!  They are a great way to use up all those pretty scraps and you cn really have fun with them.  

< This one I kept simple as it was for a multi-participant swap and I had to make several.  I used one of my favorite scraps, the candy corn paper that I have been saving for "the right" card.  It was perfect here.  

The second one was for a one-on-one swap so a I added a little to it.  I used more contrasting papers and I put a pop dot on the overlapping corners to give it more interest.  I added a Jolee's medallion sticker to the center and a few rhinestones in the corner.  The sentiment for both is from  Stampin' Up Teeny Tiny Wishes.

I am already pulling scraps for Christmas ones!

Hope you have a crafty weekend!
