Ooh la la....Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend????

If this post looks familiar, then you are not going bananas...LOL!!! I accidentally posted it today I have the pleasure of announcing that I'm the Guest Designer for the Ooh la la Challenge Blog the next two month. Of course I want to thank the fabulous ladies over at the Ooh la la blog for inviting me and I'm looking forward hanging out with them the next couple of weeks :) !!!

The Challenge #96 for the next two weeks is all about *NEW BEGINNINGS*. I guess you can interpret this theme in many ways....

I decided to do a *Happy Birthday* card. Many of my friends and family members have a January birthday and of course each birthday starts a new chapter in their life's. I was provided with the beautiful Be Mine - Passion for Fashion DP in the background. It compliments perfectly with Kraft CS and also with the PTI Enchanted Evening CS.

My inspiration for this card came from the Sketchbook Saturday Sketch #143. For the cirlces I used the Spellbinder Picot Edge Circle and the Classic Standard Circle Dies. The sentiment is from the PTI Communique Mini Set. To follow the Sketch I added some scoring on my background panel. Next, I added the panel on the bottom and added some piercing lines on the top and bottom plus the punched out Scallop Border. To finish it all off  I added the PTI Enchated Evening RibbonButton with some Brown Scrapper' Floss, Flowers and the Silver Pearls.

Now it's your turn!!! Hope you'll get chance to play?!? Please make sure to stop by the Ooh la la Blog for all the beautiful ideas the Design Team had!!!

Have a wonderful day and please make sure to come back tomorrow for my new Flourishes card!!!

                                                                      Hugs, ~Silke~

Hey girlie! Thank you for the Xmas card. Your girls are growing up SOOOOO much and they're all so beautiful....I had to take a double take on Mimi. She looks so grown up that I almost didn't recognize her.

Beautiful card, as always! I love the blue and brown together. :)

Have a great day!
