'You Make Me Happy' Layout {Purple Pumpkin Sketch} Webster's Pages Ribbons & Trims Challenge





Hello there!  There's a new sketch up at Purple Pumpkin for May
& here is my take on it! It's a nice simple sketch so why not play
along for a chance to win some Purple Pumpkin goodies?
 Layouts are voted on by the Design Team so it's worth the effort :)


I kept my layout simple too as I had the idea of using the tickets around the circle & also wanted to use the pink bloomers tape from Webster's Pages, so I knew I wouldn't be able to add more than a few embellishments after that.

I used white cardstock as a base then cut down my patterned paper 2cm down the length & 2cm across the width, so it ended up 1cm smaller all round.  I never cut my borders narrower than this as this width makes it much easier to photograph, what with perspective distortion!


I used various Purple Pumpkin goodies here, namely the tickets & the fabric buttons in the cluster. The rest of the elements & patterned paper are from Webster's Pages as I also entered this in their 'Ribbons & Trims' challenge over at InspireME last month.


It was good to make a dent in my Webster's stash.  I am trying to keep my new purchases to a minimum on brands like these where I literally have over 50 sheets of patterned paper still to get through & a shoebox sized container full of embellishments!

Thanks for the visit :)
