Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Picture Perfect

It's Picture Perfect week over at Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  It is my 'off' week but I love these challenges so much I have to play along.  The inspiration photo for this week is:

Whew, tough one for me.  I've used the floor as inspiration for my background, the plates for my shapes and the colours of the piano and candles for my colours.  This is what I came up with...

The sentiment is from Smarty Pants and the leaves are from Vogue Abode.  I wasn't sure how this would turn out but I'm happy with it in the end. I don't always do well with random layouts like this.  Also, I was able to combine patterned papers from three different manufacturers/collections and that's even more difficult.  Hope you like it.  I'm also throwing it in for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol Contest - Encouragement.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you have a chance to play along this week.  All the details are on the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge blog.  You have until June 3rd to be inspired by this fabulous photo!  Check out the amazing creations this week's team has come up with!

Have a great week.  I'll be back on Wednesday with my last (sniffle, sniffle) Guest Designer post for Paper Smooches.
