"Ooh La La" Birthday card

Today is a Design Team Day over at Paper Playtime! :)  The theme this time is to make a card (or other project) and to include a charm.

I think this card is so fun! I cut the card base from "Tie the Knot".  I won this card from a DT Challenge awhile back but have just started playing with it.  I love this cut!  SO sexy. :)

The card base it cut from cream colored shimmer card stock. All layers are just generic card stock (the pink and black are scraps).

I used my white Gelly Roll pen to add the doodling around the black layer. I really love how it looks with the black stitched ribbon. The Happy Birthday is from Scrappy Mom's Stamps.

I tied the bow with my Bow Easy and used hot glue to attach it to the card base. Here you can see the rhinestone flower I added to the charm wire.  I threaded the wire through the bow before attaching it to the card.

My wonderful charm really is a Frankenstein embellishment! :) 
The little flower charm is from a flea market (as is the wire I made the pin from) and the rhinestone flower is from a broken bracelet my sons found at a playground last year.  It was actually a string of these rhinestones, so maybe you'll be seeing more of them in the next few weeks or so. :)

Now, head on over to Paper Playtime and enter in the "use a charm" challenge!
