Penny's Challenge #21

It's time again for PENNY'S CHALLENGE.
Remember we are a bi-weekly challenge now so don't worry if you thought you missed last week's challenge ... there wasn't one, teehee!

This week we are using INCHIES! Now I must admit .. this is something I rarely do so I'm really glad Penny came up with this challenge idea! And, it was great fun!

I've used my "INCHIES" for the bottom & top image panels. They are of course 1" squares, which are cut from DCWV Baby Girl Nursery designer paper that I have stamped & colored using the SU "Oh So Lovely" flower image. The main image is also SU ... "Bloomin' Beautiful" which I have masked and stamped using SU "French Script" for the background. I've used Nestabilities classic ovals to cut my image & matting panels.

For added inspiration, be sure to check out the creations by my co-team members listed below:
* Alison - Hairy Harry's Craft
* Boni - Bonibleaux Designs
* Kim - Memories in Thyme
* Cheryl - CherCroppin's Stamp Pad
* Alanna - Alanna's Spot in the World

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll come play along in our challenge! I look forward to seeing what you create! Happy Stamping Everyone!!!

Wow Darlene! What a creative way to use Inchies. I usually avoid using them because I can't think of something to do with something so little, but I never thought of combining them like you did. Brillant idea!
