Today I have a card for you from one of my favorite digi providers- A Day For Daisies. The challenge over at The ADFD blog is to use pinwheels or to get inspiration from the photo of pinwheels.  Over the weekend we had a lovely dinner at a friends house so I wanted to make a Thank you card.
 A Day for Daisies also offers a freebie so don't fret if you do not have any ADFD images. For this card I happen to be using the freebie. 
Thanks for stopping by.
