New Beginnings at Ooh La La

Hello bloggy friends.  Well, it is Monday again and that means it is time for another fabulous challenge at Ooh La La Creations.  Firstly, please let me say a big thank you for all the entries that we had for the last challenge.  Please stop by the Ooh La La Challenge Blog to see who our lucky winners were.  Remember, there is no Random Org here, the Design Team take it in turns to pick their favourite and two runners up - so if you won it's because we loved your creation!!

So, onto the next challenge and this time it is:
Here is the card I made for this challenge:
I have used images and DP from the Boyz to Men CD which you can buy here.  This CD, likes the others in the OLL range has a section on CD that helps you to make quick cards. 

In this instance the section is all about Easel cards and all the papers, embellishments etc are all there ready for you to make a quick but fabulous card.

The little black gems are from my stash.

Please remember to stop by the rest of the Design Team and see their fabulous creations (links on the DT tab at the top of this page).  They have all worked really hard to offer you some inspiration, so please remember to leave them some love if you pay a visit.
