Spirograph Card

Hello Crafty Friends, 

For today I am entering my card into CAS(E) this Sketch. This sketch is so intriguing and had to try it out! So, here is my card for today, enjoy!

I used my daughter's Spirograph set to create this colorful design.
(I know there is a technical name for this but I cannot remember it) She received a Spirograph for Christmas one year and I think I was more excited than she when she opened the package.
I really to enjoy the black backdrop and sentiment strip.
I think it really allows those Spirograph colors to pop!
For those who have a Spirograph here is my recipe to achieve this design.
150/55 wheel, #52 gear, in hole 1-x7
I experimented with several colors and found this combination to be the best.
Challenges entered:
CAS(E) this Sketch: CTS#237

So I tried to look into the science of Spirographs and then I remembered some flashbacks of Trigonometry class. Brain turned off so I decided to just focus on the beauty of these geometrical gems. While 'researching' I came upon this website where you can create your own Spirograph online!! I found it to be a great way to kill a couple of minutes of your precious time. Check it out here! I added this cool graphic showing how a Spirograph works. If you haven't tried one I HIGHLY recommend it. It is seriously hours of creative fun. Plus, this activity would be awesome for kiddos too. 
Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

All the best,

P.S. here is what I created using the Inspirograph site. So much fun!

Then I recreated my hand crafted card design into a digital design. Looks exactly the same!
