True Romance and Paper Haus

Currently The Paper Haus are having a seven day blog hop along with launch of their 'Summer' magazine which is nice and bright in the middle of our winter.  The magazine, along with the blog hop is very inspiring with so many talented people around the world.

The Paper Haus also have a sketch challenge each month.  This month the talented Nicole Doiron has created the sketch and I thought I would have a go. 
The design worked well for my great niece's 4th birthday party and as I was playing with the new Kaisercraft 'True Romance' range for Embellish It, the papers were also lovely and fresh to work with.
 Once again I tried to make the most of the patterned paper and just punched opposite diagonal corners.  The circle frames were punched with a Fiskars circle punch and then I put the cut off borders back on to extend the circles and finished them with liquid pearls.  The journalling is printed on a transparency so as not to detract from the patterned paper.  I cut around the cute birthday girl's photo and mounted it on one of the tags from the 'Passionate' paper.  Another tag from the 'Sweetheart' label sheet was halved and layered under the circles.
The medallion was printed on the paper but needed popped so I added two layers of pleated ribbon to the collectables cardstock medallion and attached some additional ribbons underneath, then finished it with liquid pearls and a 4.

 Another little cluster at the bottom.
 So there it is.  I enjoyed playing along with the sketch.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and welcome to any Paper Haus visitors visiting for the first time.   Everyone's visit is much appreciated.  Thank you.

Until next time.....
