Ok, time to share my layout with you:

Heartfelt Creations:

GCD Studios Ella Blue Collection, My Mind’s Eye Bohemia, Ranger Liquid Peals-White Opal, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Olive Vine, Maya Road Mist (Blue Agave), Ranger Stickles (Diamond), Ranger Tim Holtz Paper Distresser, StazOn Archival Ink (Jet Black), White doily, White Signo pen, Sharpie pen, Basic Grey Mini Mono Sticker (Hello Luscious), Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page (Cherish, Scallop 3 Dot)

I used Linda's (Heartfelt Creations owner) photo for this layout. I wanted to go with an elegant layout since she looks so beautiful in her picture! I used a die cut shape for the background and added a few layers and a doily. 

For the flowers, I stamped and glimmer misted them with Maya Road Agave Blue mist diluted with water to get different shades of blue. I shaped and layered the stamped images and added liquid pearl dots to the center.

I used my all time favorite leaf stamps to fill in my flower clusters. I added glimmer mist (Olive Vine) to the leaves for a it of a shine. I printed and fuzzy cut a few butterfly images and added them throughout the flower cluster.

Here is another view of these gorgeous leaves!

I finished by adding faux stitching to all the edges and stamping a sentiment to the left of the photo.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Punch around the page using Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Cherish. Cut out a die cut shape within the background paper. Distress all the edges of the die cut paper and add faux stitching around the edges. Adhere everything onto a light blue cardstock for support.  Distress two more strips of paper, add faux stitching and layer them onto the background as shown. Mat your 5”x7” picture onto dark blue cardstock and add a small Scallop 3 Dot punched border on the left side of the picture. Add a white doily behind the picture and adhere to background. Stamp the sentiment on the strip of paper to the left side of the picture. For the flowers stamp different size flowers from the Aztec Gold Sunflowers 2 Precut Set. Cut them out and add color by misting them with, Maya Road Mist Blue Agave. To get the different shades of blue I mixed a little bit of the Agave Blue with water in a mini mister and sprayed some flowers. Shape your petals and build your flowers by layering a few of them. Add small Liquid Pearls dots to the center to finish them. For the leaves, stamp a few leaves from the Leafy Swirls Precut Set. Glimmer mist them with Olive Vine to give them color and fuzzy cut them. Add your flowers and leaves to the bottom right side of the photo as shown to build your flower cluster. Print, cut and stickle a few butterflies and add them randomly to the cluster. Die cut two butterflies from the Decorative Butterfly/Border set and layer them on top of each other. Fold the top butterfly’s wings up and add some stickles. Finally, randomly add Liquid Pearl dots around the cluster and add a title to the top right side of the photo.
