Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hello all! My new friend Melissa Phillips has started a new Inspirational Challenge over at her blog. The latest challenge is based off of this fabulous photo...Courtesy of A Creative Mint, isn't this just so inspiring! A Creative Mint is an amazing place full of gorgeousness ready to inspire anyone! So stop by and be prepared to be in awe! Here is my take...
The rows of vintage buttons, rustic cream and kraft colors and twines were what drew my attention the most. I couldn't help but incorporate these details onto my card.
The top was stamped with Background Basics: Diamonds, in pure poppy. Then wrapped with pure poppy grosgrain ribbon and tied with a tiny cream twine bow. Lined my vintage buttons up in rows onto vintage cream cardstock, stamped a sentiment (from Damask Design), rounded the bottom corners and mounted it all onto a kraft card base.

So, stop by Melissa blog for all the details and to see what Dawn McVey, Betsy Veldman, Mish Wooderson & Heather Nichols were inspired to create. Hope you get a chance to play along too. Have a wonderful day!
