I used the gorgeous picture that Linda (Heartfelt Creations owner) sent me of her daughter Ellen. I decided to go with a pink/brown color combo because of the colors in the picture. 

I made these pink flowers with chalk and puffy paint trying to mimic (somewhat) the flowers in the picture. I added a lot of greenery and some white swirls to give it a romantic look.

I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and cut/emboss it in an oval. I added a smaller cluster here too.

Finally, I made a 3 layer butterfly with rhinestones for the center. I just love this die!

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
For your background, punch around the page using Martha Stewart Vintage Flowers and adhere to a white cardstock. Place the Prima mask over a pink cardstock and mist with a solution of water a little bit of Vintage Photo reinker.  Make a doily out of this cardstock following THESE directions. Add this handmade doily to the center of the background. Die cut four brown corner dies from the Perfect Petals set and add to each corner of the layout as shown. Mat your picture and add to the left side of the layout. Die cut 3 butterflies from the Decorative Butterfly/Border set and add to the right side of the picture. Add 4 rhinestones to the body of the butterfly and lift the wings up. For the flowers, stamp and die cut using the coordinating dies a few lilies from the Pristine Lilies Precut Set. Color with pink chalk and randomly add puffy paint in long streaks along the petal. Let dry and use a heat embossing tool to make the paint puff. Mold them with your fingers and add to the left side of the picture. Stamp and die cut a few leaves and add to the cluster. Finally, die cut a few leaves in white cardstock from the Belle Rose set and cut up the swirls and add them to the cluster as well. Stamp your sentiment on white cardstock and die cut/emboss using the second largest oval from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Classic Ovals set. Stamp the Twining Clematis Precut Set off center with Vintage Photo distress ink. Pop dot this sentiment and add to the right corner of the picture. Add a flower, leaves and flourish here as well. Finish the layout by adding tiny liquid pearl dots on the handmade doily and white flourishes.
