Jingle Belles - Inchie Challenge


Hi everyone,
Yes I'm back again, with my second post for today. I don't know what happened to the old blogger that I could use :(.
This card I made tonight for Jingle Belles Inchie challenge. I am hoping that it still counts even though I have put the inchies onto black strips, which makes them look like they aren't one inch square. I used Copics to colour the ornaments & Tumbled Glass Distress ink around the edges of the squares just so they didn't look so stark. Then mounted the inchies onto the black c/s, which I then mounted onto some of my "precious" Fa la la paper. Which I then mounted on some green shimmer bazzil.
Since I am computer stupid, you will have to put up with my one card posts for awhile (until I figure things out). This is about my third or fourth attempt at these two posts.
TTFN & happy crafting everyone :D

Brilliant use of inchies! It totally counts to use them with mats, strips, or any other which way! I'm having fun seeing what others are doing for the Jingle Belles prompts! I really love the colors you've used, to - so vibrant and festive!
