I started by choosing some grey cardstock that would work with some grey patterned paper. I picked a couple of embossing folders and embossed several strips of the grey cardstock and patterned paper. These strips are the base of the layouts. On top I added my photo and a cluster of embellishments.
To create a sense of movement and flow I placed some embossed butterflies. They also help draw the eye towards the photo. I love having a closer look at the layout to see the embossed details.
I hope you'll get your folders out and emboss pretty details onto some paper.
