Inkspirational Challenge - #289 - Mini

 The first May challenge is up over at Inkspirational today.  

It's a word prompt challenge and the word is Mini!

I interpreted "Mini" as both a small image (it's stamped on a 2" x 2" square) 
and a small card - my card base is 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"

I stamped the Make a Wish Mini image from Colorado Craft onto a die cut square of water color paper using Nocturne Versafine Clair ink.  I made sure the ink was dry, and then water colored the image also creating a ground and sky around it.

I die cut two size squares using Cross Stitch Nesting Squares from Tutti Design.  I used a Nestability Square die to cut out the middle of the smaller square and used that for my image.

The square around the image is up on foam strips.
I die cut the card base using Noted: Scalloped Square die from Papertrey Ink.

So what does 'Mini' make you think of for a card?  Please join us over at Inkspirational - where you will find more inspiration from the Team as well as Mr. Linky to link up your creation! Can't wait to see what you create!

You have until May 19th to link up your card!
