My first card for the By Lori Designs challenge team!

(Please scroll down for my Quixotic Paperie DT post)

I am very happy to announce that I'm on the design team for the By Lori Designs challenge blog for the next four months!  I love Lori Boyd's images - so simple, yet fun and a joy to colour in or paper piece!  Each week is a colour challenge and this will be hard for me as I won't just be able to choose my usual bright, bold colours!  This week's challenge #5 are these gorgeous muted tones of green and pinks - I struggled to get inspired at first but once I got going, here is what I came up with...

 


This is Puddle Jumper Davey and he comes with a couple of sentiments and images including the cute teddy bear!  And there isn't a piece of DP in sight as I didn't have anything in these colours - another challenge for me as I rely on my patterned DPs to bring everything together!! 

If you have any BLD images I would love to see your take on the challenge too!  The other designer creations are gorgeous and you can see them on the blog here.  I am entering my card into Claudia and Company challenge "about a boy".

Thanks for visiting and see you on Saturday for my Totally Gorjuss post!




Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock
Stamps: BLD Puddle Jumper Davey
