I wanted to do something a little different for me (seeing as my first option didn't work LOL) so I added lots of butterflies. I really wanted to use the colour yellow but it was a little too bright against my subtle background paper so I covered the yellow pattern paper with vellum. It still allows the colour to show through bit takes away the brightness.
with the flower I wanted to add some texture so I die cut the same flower image three times, once in white cardstock, again in yellow pattern paper and then again in vellum. To give a little extra texture I embossed the vellum with "swiss dots" embossing folder from cuttlebug.
I attached a little bit of glue in the middle of each butterfly, both on the yellow ones and the vellum ones just to hold in place so that I could stitch them down the middle. I wanted to be able to lift the wings to give lots of dimension.
