I also added a swatch of from a Hambly Transparency overlay and one of the super cute (but hard to know what to do with) pom poms from Glitz design.
The 2nd layout features overlapping strips that are 3" wide with rounded corners. I don't know what the rounded corners make such a difference, but it really does. I really wanted to feature the lace paper which is gorgeous but again, harder to know what to do with. Here's it's peaking out from under a layer, making it easier to adhere. I used a scrap of lace from Melissa Frances to finish the layout.
This design is easily transferable to a card, courtesy of Linda Tucker.
Ps....the background for both layouts with the white dotted swiss from Bazzill.
