By Lori Designs Challenge #11 -Sweet Baby Boy

Wow the week just flew right on by! 
It's Thursday again and it's time for another fun color challenge over at "By Lori Designs Challenges"!!

Since I'm on TeamB it's suppose to be my creative freedom week, but I decided I really liked the gorgeous color palette Lori has come up with for this week! The colors this week are; Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, White.
I didn't follow the colors to a tee, but they are as close as I could get them using this adorable image...

 The image I used for my card is called "Baby Carter and Toys" and can be found in the "By Lori Designs" shop HERE! Isn't it just adorable!!
I cut out the toys and bottle, 3D mounted them to the image, then added "Stickles" and then "Gloss Accents" over the glitter on the ball, bib and bottle to give them a more plastic look.

I created the sentiment myself and if anyone wants it with a couple other variations of it...I will be sharing it on my blog next week! So be sure to keep an eye out!

Here is a closeup of the double bow and the cute little baby bottle charm I added...

I'm really loving the "Bow Easy" tool I got a couple months ago! It makes the bows turn out so beautifully!!

And the inside...

PAPERS: Textured cardstock in creme, white and light slate blue. Design paper is from "Recollections".
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: Baby blue satin ribbon, pearl and silver brad from "Lush", creme white pearls, baby blue and creme buttons and silver baby bottle charm.
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Cuttlebug" machine w/ argyle embossing folder and scallop border punch from "Fiskars".
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with creme color thread. Parts of image and sentiment were 3-D foam mounted. "Stickles" glitter glue and "Glossy Accents" were added to the image for even more sparkle and depth.
