Inchin' by to say hi

I just can't get enough of the cute set "Just for you" by whimsy stamps. Isn't this little inch worm adorable!!

I made this card for the Whimsy Stamps challenge. The challenge this month is  

" Add some metal".

 There are still 2 weeks left to enter the challenge for a chance to win one of the prizes up for grabs.


I stamped the image using Memento tuxedo ink and used some copics for coloring. These 2cute ink stamps are just perfect for copic use, I usually struggle using my copics and I am so happy I actually manage to use them for these images.

It's a pretty simple sketch. I simply punched out a circles using designer  papers from my scraps. Then I added a smaller white circle with some brads, which are the metal I used on my card.
I added a a couple of strips of matching designer paper to the bottom, to balance it out a little. And yes, you guessed correctly, I messed up stamping my sentiment, so I just had to "fix" it by stamping it again, cutting it out and adhering it onto the messed up sentiment. That's how the pink strip of paper got added too. To finish it off, I added the button with some silver cord, and glitter to the flower.

I would love to enter my card to the following challenges:
 Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoy your day!
