I'm a Lollipop Girl!

Today is one for celebration!  I am officially a Lollipop Girl for By LORi Designs and so excited about this opportunity. I had applied for the team as they were expanding to add a challenge team late last year. There is an amazing group of talent that LORi Boyd has brought on to design for her and I'm honored to be among them.

Here's this week's color palette for the By LORi Designs Challenge.  This is a great set of colors - I have always been partial to lavenders and greens together but I like the added twist with the pink and brown here. The official color palette is Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery and Early Expresso.

This is a new special edition image at By LORi Designs - it incorporates three individual images into one digi called "Friends Forever". This special edition digi was created by Arielle Gordon using By LORi Design and Hannah Boyd images and you can find it HERE at the By LORi Designs shop.

This time I colored the image using both Copic and Stampin Up markers. Some Pink Pirouette and Early Expresso sponging was done on the image panel.  I hand cut around the balloons so they would overlap my circle Nestie before die cutting so they would hang outside the die cut. This gives it some interest and dimension. The papers used here are digital papers from Sheri K Designs and had three of the four challenge colors in them. It was finished off with a Razzleberry and Celery ribbon bow topped with a pink button. The card is for my daughter's good friend who has a special milestone birthday celebration coming up this weekend.

Now why don't you join us in the challenge this week? Create a card using the challenge colors and a By LORi Designs digi - there are darling images available for as low as $1 in the By LORi Designs shop. Each week the team will vote on a top Lollipop card and that winner will receive a free digi from the BLD shop and have an opportunity to be the guest designer for the next challenge. How cool is that?!

And now for some incredible inspiration, visit the By LORi Designs challenge blog HERE to see the brand new design team and what they've created using BLD images and the challenge colors this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
