Cute as a Button

This cheeky photo was taken at the local play ground and I thought I'd do something a little different in my layout, rather than adorning it with different types of flowers, leaves and ribbon this time I chose to use the card stock and photo as the embellishments.  

I divided the page into 48 segments then choose card stock which married with the colours in the photo (Real Red, Crumb Cake, and Night of Navy), then using several different  stamp sets adorned each segment of card stock in a different way ether using stamps or distressing with a crackle effect. You will see that I have individually machine sewn each piece onto the base card. I dotted the page with Antique Brads, old buttons and cross stitched with Linen Thread.
I apologise that all of the stamp sets that I have used are retired but you could get the same effect with the writing from By the Sea Stamp set, the small flower out of Summer Silhouettes stamp set, the skids from Gorgeous Grunge.

Hope you are inspired!
