Meet Elle... cute, adorable and chubby!  But watch out, even though she looks innocent, she's a bit mischevious too.  ;D   I thought she would be a fun image to use with my new metal die that has been sitting on my shelf unused... the pinwheel.  I know it's such a simple shape but I must day it was nice to have it all cut out and ready to fold with no fuss.  Plus it has all the rounded corners and required holes - bottom line, it's convenient!  LOL

The pinwheels were so much fun that my daughter wanted me to cut some out for her too.  I don't remember how many I ran through the dicutting press, but I do remember I had to help fold everyone one!  She wanted them to be perfect and stressed over it too much.  So I worked out a deal that she would get them all started and I would put the brad through the center.  I'm an expert now.  LOL

The image I used is Elle from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  She was colored first then I selected papers to match - however, it was that difficult as pink is always an easy color to match in my house.  ;D This wasa  fun image to practice coloring skin tones and I tried out a new combination: E53, E51, E21, E34, E00, E000 and E0000 with a little R11 for blush. 

I'd like to enter this into the following Sketch & Die Cut themed challenges:
