Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Photo Inspired Challenge

I am so excited to participate in this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge because it is a photo-inspired challenge.  The photo carries a strong sense of fall - the dark brown background, the leaves and the vintage feel.  Many of the design team's artwork also carries the theme of fall.  However, what really speaks to me is the transparent ornaments on the right. 

I would love to create a card with a lot of transparent objects.  So I searched through the stash and found the Clear Assortment Buttons.  The buttons, however, are more spring-inclined.  Thus, I used the Sophia paper to cut out a flower to sprinkle some sense of spring.  With some stamped accents and embroidery floss, a beautiful card is done. 

This also reminds me that our Sophia paper is retiring, and so are  the embroidery floss collections except the neutral one.  If you want to grab them before they are gone, you'd better hurry!


  1. Such a pretty card! I love the bows on the buttons and the way you cut out the image from the Sophia paper. Thanks for playing with us this week at H2H!

  2. Love how you used thc clear buttons! Pretty card! TFS!

  3. Cool how you selected the clear element to create your piece! Such a completely different feel than the original piece, but it works! Thanks for playing!
