It's the first Monday of the New Year and it's time for our first challenge of the New Year over at Ooh La La Creations.   Our theme for this fortnight is - Birthday - we all have Birthday cards to make so why don't you share yours with us, you don't have to use an Ooh La La Creations product but we love it when you do.

I have used one of the gorgeous decoupage images from the new Ooh La La Creations CD - Yesterday's Memories - this brand new CD contains a collection of Vintage Images for all occasions and covers a variety of themes, you can purchase it from the Ooh La La Creations online shop..

The image and matching floral papers are all from the Yesterday's Memories CD, the pink papers are from another Ooh La La Creations CD, full details of everything I have used are listed below.

As usual I have decorated the inside of my card using the same papers and layout.

Card Recipe:

Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  Die-namics - Butterfly Die, Spellbinders - Scalloped Circle and Classic Circle
Embellishments:  ribbon, gems and brads from stash
