Inching Towards a Birthday

My aunt is a quilter and she swears that if you don't like the fabric, you haven't cut it small enough yet.  This card is a testament to her thinking.  I made an inchie background put put them on the diagonal at 45 degrees.  I used up scraps from 3 very ciciddllic papers.  The smokie one seems to tone down the other two quite well.  I used the pearls which in real life match the bird's wings to cover the fact that not all the corners are perfect.  I think this would be fun to do for a baby card.  The bird is a sneak peak for this month.  I love this sweet new set.

Hope you will join us for this week's inchie challenge on MFP's Speedy Fox and Friends.

Challenges this card meets:
Sister Act - Anything Goes
The Stamping Boutique - Punches
DRS Design - Birds and Bees

  1. Great choice of papers and it certainly looks like a quilt. Love the addition of the little pearls.

  2. Love the way you included the inchies and placed the pearls to create the background. Great card!

  3. Oh, I really like the background you created for this sweet owl image! How clever to add the pearls to cover where the corners don't quite match. I wouldn't have thought of that!!

    Thank you for sharing your sweet card with DRS Designs this week!

  7. What a fun quilt saying from your Aunt and it would work for paper too - LOL! TFS. This is super cute and that image is fun. Thanks for sharing this with us in the DRS Designs Challenge.

  8. That's some great advice from your aunt, and now I know how to use up all those large prints! Great use of inchies for this fun quilt card and I love the bling in place of corner stitches! Well done!
