Inspirational Photo Challenge

I just adore looking at Melissa Phillips blog,she is so inspirational  and her work is so beautiful. Sometimes I get a tear in my eye when I read the things she writes about her daughter.
I also love the Photo Inspirational Challenge that she has started doing so I thought I would have a go at  it this week.She gets the photo's from A Creative Mint which is another great source of inspiration .. This is the photo for this week:

What a gorgeous photo of vintage buttons and ephemara done in reds and creams . Firstly I decided to get a pile of stash out that I wanted to use. Here it is:

I had great fun making these cards and LO and it really does get you inspired when you look at a beautiful photo with a great colour scheme.I put my stash in this gorgeous cake stand that I got  from BHS.It is so much easier to get creative when everything is out in front of you.

Here are my finished cards

I'm off to the Bromsgrove 12 hour Cropaganza tomorrow so I need to get my photos printed and stash together. I wish I was more organised I always leave everything until the last minute and I'm bound to have forgotten something. TaTa. for now!
