Papertrey Princesses Challenge

The Papertrey Princesses' first challenge of 2010 was issued by Anya. You can see the details here . Anya chose this inspiration photo, and what a beautiful one it is!

It makes me wish I was more of a sewer! I took inspiration from the colors blue, white, green and kraft; the theme of sewing; and the blue buttons and blue ribbon in the photo.

Here's my card:

Stamps: Blooming Button Bits, Background Basics: Retro
Ink: Spring Rain, New Leaf, Enchanted Evening
Paper: Kraft, Spring Rain, White
Other: Spring Rain buttons, Spring Rain satin ribbon, sewing machine, gems, sponge, white floss (DMC)
