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.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafting At the Weekend Challenge 6 - Anything Goes
Kitty Bee Designs Challenge 34 - Dies and/or punches
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 232 - Anything With Ribbon
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - Anything goes with Patterned Paper

Make sure you pop over to the Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Inspired by Nature challenge.

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.
