Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect

Today begins a fun new challenge over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!  It's an inspiration challenge, to use the following picture as inspiration for a card.  Isn't it pretty?

Here's what I came up with for the challenge.  I used some actual buttons and then a bunch of buttons from the Paper Smooches Needle Little Love set stamped and fussy cut from patterned papers.  This set is definitely a must have, it's just super fun and has sooooo many adorable sewing images!  My card background was done using a Sizzix embossing folder.  I inked my card using some wheat ink to soften it.  Then added a kraft layer cut to the size of the button card and added all my buttons.  The paper buttons have glossy accents added for that realistic look.  

I hope you'll take the time to check out the SPARKS blog for challenge details and submit your own card!  Also, be sure to check out the other SPARKS Design Team member's creations on their blogs.
