Patty challenged us to create a pink collage card for her HYCCT challenge and I chose to do an inchie collage BG. I combined 2 BG stamps for the inchies (the floral and the french script - both retired from SU) then cut them into 1 1/4" squares. The flower is my first attempt to use the Spiral Blossom One die by Spellbinders...so easy to work with! While it was still in the die, I sponged the petals with Melon Mambo ink and then rolled it using my petal roller tool and used the ball tip of the tool to curve the petal edges under. The leafy flourish die is by Cheery Lynn Designs.
STAMPS: Great Greetings (SU)-sentiment; Floral BG & French Script BG stamps by SU
PAPER: Melon Mambo, White, Black
INK: Melon Mambo, Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Cheery Lynn Designs' Leafy Flourish die, Tiny tags die by PTI, Satin ribbon, Spiral Blossom One die by Spellbinders.

I brake for red cards - they always catch my eye and are one of my fav colors. Love, Love how you created the inchies from those retired stamps - awesome. Then the touch of black and that fabulous flower - one downright fabulous card.
