Pinspired Monday - Quatrefoil

Hello Authentique friends!  JJ here today, with my take on "Pin-spired Monday".   Lately, I've been very drawn to quatrefoil patterns, so I took my inspiration from this 'Pin':

I incorporated the quatrefoil design into my layout by die-cutting simple black cardstock and using the pieces like trim or lace on my page:

It almost looks like iron-work when used for a Hallowe'en theme, but in another colour it could be light and airy.  I like the added texture it gives, while still allowing the beautiful paper beneath to show through.

Details and Elements stickers and letters finish off the page, including this journaling spot.  I love it when journaling can also be an embellishment!  Tracing around the stickers gives them a little extra definition against a busy background like this one.
