Inspired by Nature

It's time for a new challenge at Ooh La La Creations and it was my turn to choose the theme this time and I have chosen 'Inspired by Nature'

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, 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 decided to keep things quite simple again and have used a fabulous image and papers from the Ooh La La Creations  -  Carnival of Colour CD, you can purchase it from the Ooh La La Creations online shop.

I have layered everything onto black card stock from my stash and punched the border with my Fiskars edge punch  The sentiment tag is LOTV and the string and card candy are also from my stash.

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

DRS Designs Challenge 71 - Paper Punches
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 270 - Tie it up
Stamp n Doodle Challenge - Feeling Blue
Stamping with the Dragon Challenge - Tags
613 Avenue Create Challenge 21 - Anything Goes
Challenges 4 Everybody Challenge 21 - Anything Goes
The Corrosive Challenge 175 - I've Been Framed
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Into the Woods

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 my '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.
