SSW 83 - By LORi Designs

Good morning, I need a strong cup of coffee already - it feels like this week will never end. Too bad the holidays are over already. Oh well, I guess there is always trusty weekends :)

It is the first challenge of 2011 at Sweet Sketch Wednesday today. We had a great turnout last week and had many amazing entries - thanks for all your support!

Our sponsor this week is By LORi Designs.

The winner this week gets a $10 gift certificate - awesomeness!
I have wanted to work with Lori's images for many months but have never seemed to find the time. I was so excited to see that she was our January 5th sponsor!

I used Miss Avery...

...on Arlana's wonderful sketch:

Usually this kind of image would scream to me "use lots of pink!!!" but I thought I would try a different color combo. I think it turned out quite well.

Card Ingredients:
By LORi Designs image; Deja Views Soda Pop papers; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Copics, Gelly Roll white pen; Rectangle Nesties; Stampendous! Blue glitter; Dress It Up buttons; Recollections gems.

I do hope you will check out the rest of the DT creations as well as our awesome sponsor:

Thank you for being a friend.

Adorable card Deanne! I really like the color combo you chose. Your ballerina is so perfectly colored and I love her sparkly skirt. Great embellishments - love the buttons with the gems and how you positioned them randomly - great touch.
