Rikki here with another layout to share with you all. Last week I mentioned about layers, fussy cutting and flowers.....

So where do you start? For myself its about keeping the background simple, flat with a boarder so things can ''spill'' from the centre section. The glitter cardstock is perfect for that, just remember its thicker and to be a little bit gentle with your board punches....
I broke one handle on one of mine, for this layout, but it can still be used and its was worth it :)

When it comes to your ''clusters'' I work on odd numbers so 7, 5, 3, its an old graphic design trick it looks pleasing to the eye. So there's 3 flowers, 2 butterflies and 2 fussy cut flourishes. 
You can also see 3 doilies that the photos are sitting on. The centre cluster has 1 flower, a paper flower and a flourish and I am sure you can figure out the rest.

This is one of the reasons I love to fussy cut sometimes the paper is too busy but it might have a flow to it and it might be the perfect little embellishment to finish off your cluster.
