By Lori Designs Challenge #4!

Good afternoon everyone! As I mentioned last week, I made the "By Lori Designs" design team! I'm so excited to be on Lori's team and to work with such talented ladies!

Every week she will have an exciting weekly color challenge and this week we are into challenge #4! Here is my card using this weeks colors...and since one of my nephews birthdays are coming up soon, I had him in mind while making this...

And here are the colors...

For my card I used the set called 'Birthday Ezra' from the "By Lori Designs" shop found here, it's the 8th one down.

Some closeup peeks...

And of course the inside...

PAPERS:Glittery aqua blue textured cardstock, red and white textured cardstock and designer paper textured cardstock all from "DCWV". Light blue and plain white cardstock for the bases.
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is an adorable digi stamp from "By Lori Designs" and the sentiment is handstamped, embossed and is from "Stampendous".
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend. Black pigment ink from "ColorBox".
EMBELLISHMENTS: Faux rhinestones, glittery foam stars and clear acrylic dew drops.
TOOLS: Sewing machine and "Spellbinders" with rectangle dies.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with aqua color thread. Stardust "Stickles" glitter was also added to the candle on the cake! The sentiment was embossed with shimmery Kaleidoscope embossing powder and was 3D mounted and stitched to the image.

Lori's images are absolutely adorable and you know you just have to play along with her gorgeous color hop on over to the shop and grab an image and join in the fun! You have until 12 midnight Wednesday night to submit your card and one lucky winner will receive a "By Lori Designs" image!
