I placed 2 lots of vellum over it plus a gold doiley. That softened it.
To increase the vertical I've put a strip of washi tape down the edge of the vellum.....it is straight, from here the whole layout looks crooked...it isn't.
I added my 3 photos,2 skeleton leaves,title, a large brad and my journaling card which my daughter can write on later.
