Happy New Year

Happy New year crafters. I am starting off my inspiration for you with a challenge from Ooh La La.
An easy peasy one to get your mojo working again for 2016 'Girly' chosen by the lovely Deborah.

In the true tradition of the festive season, using left overs, to create yummy recipes I'm showing how I created a card using left overs or bits and pieces!!

This is my inspiration for you.

I started with a square based card in cream and scalloped the edges with fancy scissors. Down the fold I created a braided edge. Video on You Tube link braided/lattice edged.

 I embossed the opening edge with a flower border folder.

The topper sentiment is from OLL 'Say it with words'. The additional bow to the spray of embossed flowers is from the Paula Oakley OLL CD. Most of the CDs have these pretty bows on. This was the perfect colour for my card.

Inside the card I added a left over piece of background paper from OLL ' Fleur D'Imagination' to show through the braiding.

Then of course I had to make it more 'girly' with the addition of gems. These were placed down the braided edge and on the flowers and the bows.

I hope you like this simple card with a few ideas for you to use left overs/snippets.

 Don't forget to pop over to Ooh La La challenge blog (link in side bar) to see what the rest of the design have created to inspire you. There are some fab 'Girly' cards to get your mojo working again!! Get creating!!

I hope you all have a happy, healthy 2016 and have lots of fun crafting.

I'll be back later this month with more inspiration for you and links to some other fab challenges to inspire you!!
