It's definately not a photo I would typically look to to be inspired but I guess that's why they call it a challenge. What caught my eye immediately was that gorgeous cooper background. I really wanted to use cooper paper but I don't have any :) The closest I could think of was Barely Banana heavily sponged in More Mustard. I stamped the tiny hearts from Verve's Hearts on Fire all along the background. I love this effect and it was super simple. Since I wanted them to resemble the photo I didn't need them to be lined up so I attached the stamp to the block a little crooked and began stamping.
I free hand cut the the heart out of Old Olive paper and backed it with a Chocolate Chip Heart. The brads and the library clip gave me the metallic element I was looking for. I stamped the tiny single heart in Real Red ink on Real Red paper and cut it out to add a tiny bit of color. I also used red embroidery floss to tie the button on for another pop of color.
