For my card I used a variety of October Afternoon and S.E.I. papers and combined it with the sweet little duck from the Polka Dot Pals set. I tried my hand at creating a pinwheel as a bit of a main layer to the card and I quite like how it turned out :D The little duck was coloured with my tombows and blended with a water brush and then I stamped the patterned wing on top with some Melon Mambo ink to add a little whimsy :)
