Perfect 10 Layout

I am a pretty simple scrapper, but I always envy those who can layer multiple items on a layout without it looking messy or distracting from the pictures. Well, I decided to try some layering, since it's the new year and it's a great time to try new things, right? I went a little die-cut crazy and probably wore my poor Cricut out (at least for the morning!), but I like the result. I still kept it simple in terms of patterns, but hopefully that will be something to work on as the year progresses. Let me know what you think!

Recipe:
All the Details stamp set
Dotty for You Level 2 papers
Honey, Cranberry, Saddle, Black, Lagoon & White Daisy cardstock
Honey, Cranberry, Saddle & Lagoon ink
Black marker
Red Glitter Gems
Lagoon ribbon
Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge: tag, circle, heart
Cricut Artbooking cartridge: all other die-cuts
Pattern: Let's Scrap 12-11-13
Challenges: Heart 2 Heart new beginnings challenge (I tried a new technique: layering); Stampin' Royalty birthday challenge

I am like you, I have a hard time layering and I always feel like it looks sloppy or that I am trying to hard, but your layout is awesome. It has layering and details but it looks awesome and so not over done. I love it. Thanks for playing along at Heart 2 Heart challenges!
