Have a Groovy Day! By Lori Designs -Challenge #13 -DT Card!

It's that time again for another fun color challenge at "By Lori Designs" Challenges! And this weeks colors have a very retro feel which is why I chose to go with a groovy theme! Since I'm on TeamB I had a chance at total creative freedom this week, but I just couldn't pass up using this color palette!

The colors are; Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizazz, So Saffron and Baja Breeze!

Isn't that adorable image just groovy?!!! The image is from "By Lori Designs" is called Puddle Jumper Gabi and can be found in the shop HERE! And I just love the very retro DP I used for this one too!

I got those beautiful flowers awhile back from...believe it or not...the Dollar Store! I've had them in my stash for awhile now and couldn't figure out what to use them on...but I think they suit the theme of this card perfectly!

I didn't have any sentiment stamps to go along with my card so I of course created my own!

And as always...make sure to stop back by at the end of the week as I will be sharing this sentiment on my blog along with a few other variations of it!

Kept the inside kinda simple to show off that awesome DP along with more of those retro flowers!

PAPERS: Textured cardstock in bright blue and retro green and glitter textured cardstock in tangerine and cool beige all from "DCWV". Design paper is from "Recollections" and "DCWV".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is a digi stamp and is from "By Lori Designs" and the sentiment is my own computer generated text.
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend. 
EMBELLISHMENTS: White acrylic pearls orange and lime buttons and fabric knotted flowers with pearls.
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Cuttlebug" machine w/ retro squares and stripes embossing folders. "Fiskars" corner punch.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with creme color thread. Sentiment was 3-D foam mounted. "Stickles" glitter glue was added to the image for even more sparkle and depth.

Lori's digis are just too cute! And you know you just want to play along too! So hop on over to "By Lori Designs" grab a digi and then have a look at all the wonderful creations the team has come up with this week for your inspiration and play along!
