Blue Fern Studios August challenge

This is the first time I have done one of the challenges at Blue Fern Studios, but I was inspired after seeing a layout by design team member Kim Price, who I had the pleasure of meeting at a retreat earlier this year. So this is the challenge:
This sketch is so beautiful, and the inspiration from all of the design team was so amazing, how could I resist it. 
I chose a chipboard piece called Shabby Brick bits.
I used this photo of a niece's recent wedding, and kept the toning of my layout really soft and pretty. I stamped around the edge of the patterned paper with a variety of stamps, and also into the centre of the page, under the photo. I coloured the chipboard with Faber Castell texture luxe and then stamped over that. I added some mini prills around the chipboard. I die cut some patterned paper with a Couture Creations die and created a flower, to which I added some glass glitter, and then finished it all off with scattered flowers and sequins. 
I really love how this turned out. 
Thanks for looking at my layout and for any comments you may leave.
