Here's my layout:
(I used Page Drafts Sketch via Grand Diva's Creative Corner August challenge - see below for further details)

  Here's a close up on the layered embellishment I did.
 I used Chipboard under the flower and also the star on top of the flower. I also used bright colors and used a pin with a clear star for a challenge over at Scrap-Friendzy.
