Birthday Card using Inchies

A few weeks ago, a challenge was posted on the Scraps of Color group to create a card using at least three "inchies" and a flower. My soror's birthday was coming up so I decided to use that challenge to make a card for her. The first thing I had to do was get some "inchie" stamps. I'd never heard of them before...they're simply rubber stamps that are approximately one inch square. I went to Michael's where they really didn't have much of a selection, so I ended up with Fiskars Squarely Sentimental clear stamps, which thank heavens were on sale for 40% off. I also ended up with the flower stamp (also 40% off) and for the first time tried my hand at adding a little color to a stamp using some very old EK Success pencils that I have. Pulled out my trusty Forever Young cartridge for the image and some old Creative Memories paper. I just could not tie a nice, neat bow so ended up tacking the ends of the ribbon behind the background. The ink used was Studio G and Technique Tuesday. Note to self: Start a Copics collection and learn how to tie ribbon! Thanks for Looking!
