Double D Birthday Party

Here we are already into January 2018
which brings us to our first challenge of the year at 
Double D!!
We are celebrating our 2nd year of blog challenges
and I have loved every minute of it,
working with our fabulous designers...
they are so VERY creative and we all have become
very good friends, isn't paper crafting just the best??
Make sure and take a visit there as we have some fun prizes!!

The challenge is birthday/anniversary and the fabulous mood board below.




I have to admit I had zero mojo after Christmas 
and so went with a rather simple card.


Can you guess which photo inspired me??...LOL!!

I decided to 'wrap' a few presents for the celebration...
right along with the ribbon I have had in my stash for a very long time.

I hope you will join us at Double D and
see the fabulous creations the Design Team did...
hope to see you there!!

Congratulations on two great years of inspiration and challenges. I know the feeling when you see an inspiration and go right to a supply that you have had in your stash forever. I love this ribbon and this is just perfect for this card.

What a happy card. Love all the bright colors, and your "presents" are the best!! I really like how you have picked up the background stars in the ribbon. It all works so well together. Oh, and tell me about the lack of Mojo. Can't seem to get myself into my craft room. UGH!
