By Lori Designs Challenge #7!!

Hello everyone! Just a little reminder for everyone who stops by my you all know I will moving this weekend, so today will be the last day I have internet access until next week. I hope to get unpacked by next Monday or until then my blog will seem kinda

So anyways onto today's's Thursday again and that means it's time for another great color challenge at "By Lori Designs" Challenges! Here's my card using this weeks palette...

And here is a visual of the color sketch and the colors are; Choc. Chip, Pear Pizazz, Melon Mambo and Regal Rose...

For my card I of course used one of Lori's adorable digi images called "Butterfly" and can be found in the shop here!

Here is a closeup...

I really love the wide stitch I used on this one as it makes the background plaid DP come alive!

And I got me a new "Bow Easy " tool which I am so excited about!! I always wondered how everyone was making those perfect bows and now mine can be perfect! This tool is so much fun! For this bow I decided to do a double bow...

And the inside...

PAPERS: Plain pink and brown cardstock for the bases and all DP from "PI Memories".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is an adorable digi stamp from "By Lori Designs" and the sentiment is handstamped, embossed and is from "Papertrey Ink".
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: White pearls, Lime green satin ribbon, lime green dew drops and a pink button.
TOOLS: Sewing machine and "Spellbinders" with circles dies. "Cuttlebug" with dots embossing folder, Bow easy and "Fiskars" opened scallop border punch.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with white color thread. The sentiment was embossed with shimmery iridescent embossing powder and was 3D mounted.

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!
