To create my background I added texture paste to black card stock and then added Mermaid Markers over the paste to add dots of colour.
I layered papers behind my photo and added a tag with hidden journalling behind the photo.
The ribbon worked perfectly with my photo, i added it as a title under my photo and across the bottom of the layout.
The Ric Rac ribbon added a nice contrast to the paper down the side of my layout.
I added a finishing touch of a few embellishments around my photo and at the bottom of the layout.
