Very Vintage Thank You

I have to admit I don't use my wheels that often.  I really don't know why, because when I do, I remember how easy they are to use, and how quickly you can get an image on your card. 

I only had to roll my Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel over my Whisper White Cardstock twice to get my background.  The only additions I added were the two stamped butterflies, and a little bit of coloring using my Blush Blossom Marker.  This layer was placed onto my punched layer of Basic Gray cardstock, and  added onto my Pink Pirouette card base. 

I saw a similar card posted by another Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and it inspired me to get out my wheel and start creating.  The girls at this month's stamp class also liked the ease of using the wheel and how quickly they could make their background.  I usually just roll my wheel directly over my ink pad of choice instead of inking a cartridge, but you could buy uninked cartridges and fill with your favorite ink.  Either way works great.
