Forever Young...Another Challenge!

A couple weeks ago I came across the most adorable digi stamps from "By Lori Designs" and then found out she would be having regular challenges too!! So I just had to get me some to play along in her very first challenge...a color challenge! Along with Lori's adorable color palette, I used a cute sketch from "Sweet Sketch Wednesday".

Isn't that the sweetest image?! I feel like I'm playing with paper dolls coloring in Lori's designs!

Here are some closeups...
I feel the sentiment suits her images perfectly! Since I was going for a more bright and cutesy theme I just had to add a huge cute button! And to soften it a bit I played with vellum...very first time I have used it on my cards!

The inside...

PAPERS: Fuchsia potpourri and bright blue textured cardstock, white polka dot vellum and lime green glittery design paper all from "Best Occasions".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The adorable image is a digi stamp from "By Lori Designs". The sentiment; "Forever Young" is from "MSE (My Sentiments Exactly)".
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with PrismaColor Pencils and a Gamsol technique was used. The sentiment was handstamped with razzberry pigment ink from "Colorbox" and then embossed with kaleidoscope EP from "Stampendous".
EMBELLISHMENTS: Lime green satin ribbon, faux rhinestones, white and pink button and "Prima" paper flowers.
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Spellbinders" with rectangles and scalloped rectangles dies, "Cuttlebug" with dots embossing folder and "Stampin Up" label punch.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with pink color thread. Stardust "Stickles" glitter was also added to the image  for even more sparkle!
