I used the awesome My Mind's Eye vellum from their Necessities Collection . It's hard to capture the amazing gold but you can see it a little shining in some of the pictures.
I stitched the vellum on top of a white piece of card stock so you could see the gold dots pop. I kept photos down towards the bottom of the page, I really wanted those gold dots to take up a large space.
Here you can see the gold reflecting in in the light really well, this vellum is amazing. I added messy stitching, some stickers and of course a gold Studio Calico Atlantic gold star.
I love brads and this "just keep swimming" sticker couldn't have been more perfect for a pool layout.
