Here is my take on the challenge
This mood board was filled with tones of my favorite color so I knew I would have to use it on my layout. I framed my small photo in one of the Prima metal frame which is similar and then decorated around it with Le Mia flowers, resin feathers and blue feathers and stems from the 13 Arts shop.
I embossed the drips in the background using silver embossing powder. I loved combining the aqua colors with the silver the way they are combined in the mood board.
