By Lori Designs Challenge #5!

Hello everyone! You probably noticed I haven't been around since last week. Everyone in my house including me has been sicker than a dog, so I have been spending my time sleeping all week! I feel like I haven't blogged in!

And now another week has flown right on by and it's time for another color challenge at "By Lori Designs Challenges"! So I did manage to get a small card done to hopefully inspire everyone to join in!

And here is the gorgeous color palette to follow this week...

For my card I have of course used one of Lori's adorable images called "Birthday Emma" found in the shop here!

Here is a super cute closeup...I used some "Glossy Accents" to make the balloons pop and a bit of "Stickles" to make her sparkle!

Lori offers this image in a set with a little gift, so I added it to the inside...

PAPERS: Glittery pink textured cardstock and mocha brown textured cardstock from "DCWV". Designer paper is from "Recollections". Celery green 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 pink rhinestones, magenta satin ribbon, pearly light green button, green pearls and magenta dew drops.
TOOLS: Sewing machine and "Spellbinders" with circles and scalloped circles dies. "Cuttlebug" with large dots embossing folder.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with pink color thread. Stardust "Stickles" glitter was also added to the image for even more sparkle! The sentiment was embossed with shimmery Kaleidoscope embossing powder and was 3D mounted and stitched to the image.

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!
