Hello Darling! By Lori Designs Challenge #14 -DT Card!

Wow this week has flown by super fast...I know I keep saying that each week...but it just amazes me how time! It's Thursday again and that means it's time for another awesome color challenge at "By Lori Designs Challenges"!

The colors this week are; Soft Sky, Regal Rose, Pear Pizazz and Barely Banana...such an adorable color scheme!!

And for your inspiration, here is my card...

The super adorable image I used is included with one of the Puddle Jumper sets called "Harper" and can be found in the "By Lori Designs" shop HERE! The set comes with a cute little dolls and a sentiment, but I decided just to use Harper for my card.

Not sure if I'm inspired by the DP I've been using lately or Lori's super cute images...but just like last weeks card, doesn't this kinda have a groovy feel!

I just love those clear dew drops and went a little crazy with them all over the card! I'm also loving the beautiful brads from "Lush"!

As for the I didn't create this one, but isn't it awesome?! It's actually a clear stamp from "Studio G" that I found in the bargain bin at my local "Michaels" store awhile back!

Went with a simple inside to show off the awesome DP!

PAPERS: Textured cardstock in jewel blue and potpourri yellow from "DCWV". Design paper is from "Recollections".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is a digi stamp and is from "By Lori Designs" and the sentiment is a stamp from "Studio G".
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend. The sentiment was stamped with onyx black ink from "Versamark".
EMBELLISHMENTS: White acrylic pearls, clear acrylic dew drops, frosted swirled pink buttons, green rhinestones, polka dotted green grosgrain ribbon and brads from "Lush".
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Cuttlebug" machine, "Spellbinders" circles, ovals, scalloped ovals and big scalloped circles dies. Floral border punch from "EKsuccess".
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with white color thread. Image was 3-D foam mounted. "Stickles" glitter glue was added to the image for even more sparkle and depth.

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!
