Scrapping Outback July challenge

Well the challenge this month at Scrapping Outback, is making me think of the tropics, lol, wishing I was there, instead of freezing cold Melbourne. This is the image for the White with a twist challenge:
I had this photo of my sister in law and her husband, and Rose's dress was just the perfect match for this challenge. 
I used a Heidi Swapp stencil and some soft pastels that I rubbed over the stencil. I then spattered some ink in pink and orange around the page. I chose 3 chipboard pieces from Scrap FX (the heart), 2Crafty (the love circle) and Remember When Scrapbooking (the frangipani piece). I added embossing powders to all 3 pieces. I then added a selection of flowers from D-lish Scraps and some very vintage Charms Creations paper flowers. 
I like this overall effect, mind you the embossing of those really fine chipboard pieces was really tricky. 
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
