#222 'Die Cuts' with Ooh La La

Good morning and it's time for our next challenge at Ooh La La. This time Jennifer has chosen the theme of diecuts. So a chance to get your die cutting machines out a have a play!

Last time Janice asked you to make Thank You card and we had some lovely entries. It's always a joy to make Thank You cards I think. The Top Three are up on the board now if you want to see if you've been chosen (link in sidebar)

Here is my inspiration for you this time.
I began white card stock and made a gatefold card then used an edging die by Desire to diecut the two outside edges. I placed a dark blue matt of card from my stock to the centre panel. The Ooh La La CD I used for the image, was from the Shawn Jenkins Collection which you can find in the OLL shop (link in sidebar) I then diecut the greeting Happy Birthday from white card stock. Finally I placed some blue flower gems to give it a bit of bling!!
I tied some narrow white ribbon around to close it.....adhering it to the back of the card. Tiny blue gems were also placed in the centre of the flowers.

I don't know if this shows up but the tiny petals are loose thus giving a 3D effect.

I hope I've inspired you get those dies out and take part in Jennifer's challenge at Ooh La La.
Don't forget to visit my teamies and give them some love too. Have a great week and I look forward to visiting you soon.
