Inchies, vintage style!

Today's challenge was to use inchies! I must admit, I have not yet fallen into this fun new trend but after today it is awfully tempting! I was chicken and didn't go all the way with the inchies....meaning leaving all that white space. I decided I wanted to incorporate them, not necessarily make them the focus. You can see each inchie is a little different. I masked the two separate books to do this.

Here is a close look at the main image. It is so sweet, reminds me of my kids when they were little. They still love books which makes me very happy! I colored this image with my copic markers, you can see the faint cool gray outline which helps anchor my image. I also drew a shadow under my image to make sure it didn't look like it was just floating there.
Here are all the deets to this card:
