Free Wheeling in September starts

I love wheels so I adore this month's promotion with SU! & will try & post lots of good fun ideas.

This first card was cased from one I made last year with my upline Jacque but I've changed the colour combo & stamps to be current. Must admit my scalloped edge has got a lot better with the corner rounder since then (last year looked like I'd been drinking!) - after seeing this tutorial it all clicked how to do it - my biggest hint is to start in the middle of your cardstock & work your way out either side - so it's even.

Stampin Up and Kindness Wheel and Think Happy ThoughtsStamp set/s: Kindness Wheel, Think Happy Thoughts, One of a Kind (little circle in a row on small groovy guava strip)
Card Stock: Whisper White, River Rock, Groovy, Guava, Soft Sky
Inks: Basic Black, River Rock, Groovy, Guava, Soft Sky
Other: Blender pen, 1-1/4" circle punch, 1-3/8" circle punch, corner rounder, 1/8" hand held circle punch, white taffeta ribbon, dimensionals, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Stamp-a-ma-jig

Cutting Dimensions (& there is a lot!) :
Soft Sky: 9-1/4 x 4-1/8", score at 5"
River Rock: 4-1/8 x 5/8" + 4-1/8 x 3-3/8"
Groovy Guava: 4-1/8 x 2-1/4" + 4-1/8 x 3/8"
Whisper White: 4-1/8 x 2" + 3-7/8 x 3-3/4" (the latter for inside the card)

Fun wheelin' to all!
