Double D's Celebrating a Birthday!

Hello Friends!
It's time for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
AND, it's time to CELEBRATE!!
Diane & I are proud to announce it's the
2nd Birthday of Double D!

We will be celebrating all month (both challenges) with extra prizes being offered and even some of our fabulous DT ladies are going to be offering prizes on their blogs!  SO,  you'll want to be sure and pop over to everyone's blogs during January ... YOU just might be a lucky winner!!
To get us started, Team Diane is hosting and the theme is:
 
Anything Birthday/Anniversary Goes
 using Mood board
Let It INSPIRE You

I must say I am so excited and truly inspired by our amazing design team ladies!  I chose the cute image in the upper left corner of Diane's mood board as my inspiration ...
Let The Party Begin!!!


I had several pieces of glitter & foil paper left over from Christmas cards and thought they would make beautiful balloons and I was right!  I love how this card came together!

The main die I've used is:
Impression Obsession - Dies - Balloons

 I also used the bow from an Elizabeth Craft Balloon die (#726),
the Happy Birthday comes from an older Spellbinder D-Lites set called Happy Birthday Garland (5 die set - S2-187)
and the little birds are from the Joy! Craft 'Bird Cage' die set (#6003/0034).


 I've used scraps of paper from the DCWV Glitter Pack and the DCWV Foils pack.
A few little white Nuvo Crystal Drops added dimension to the background.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun
and help us celebrate our BIRTHDAY!

Here are the AMAZING PRIZES Diane has up for grabs to one TWO lucky random draw winners.



AND

 But, you need to play to win!!  LOL

  Remember ... some of the DT ladies are also offering prizes ... be sure to stop by their blogs and share some love!
