Inspired by Nature

It's time for a new challenge at Ooh La La Creations and the theme for the next fortnight is Inspired by Nature chosen by ME.

I have spent most of my life living in the country and love everything to do with nature, so 'Inspired by Nature' was the obvious choice for my challenge theme. As you will see from the fabulous DT inspiration the options for this challenge are endless, you could choose from animals, birds, flowers, country scenes, gardens - anything you like really as long as it has something to do with nature, I can't wait to see what you create - you don't have to use an Ooh La La Creations product but we love it when you do.

I have used a gorgeous image and papers from the Ooh La La Creations Yesterday's Memories CD to make my card.


I have used the decoupage image, no surprises there then!  I cut the image out with my Spellbinders Regal Frame die, the gold frame is from the same set.  I made the flowers with a Memory Box die and the leaves and flourishes were cut with a Sue Wilson Finishing Touches die.


To finish my card I added some ribbon and pearls from my stash.

Crafting At the Weekend Challenge 6 - Anything Goes
Kitty Bee Designs Challenge 34 - Dies and/or punches
