Lil Lolita Challenge #7 with a Guest DT Call!!!

I can't believe we're on challenge #7 already!! It just keeps getting better & better and I LOVE checking out all the entries we get each week. This week there are some exciting things going on at the Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge blog! For starters, we're looking for a Guest Designer for the month of August! If you are interested, just post your project using a Lil Lolita for this weeks challenge on the Lil Lolita Boutique Blog with GDT after your name and you will be considered. Also, each week starting today we'll be giving away a Lil Lolita stamp as a prize!! We will feature the stamp when we announce the new challenge. Also, Kellie has been SO busy with the store and lots of other things going on behind the scense that she has needed some help and I'm SO excited to step in as DT Coordinator for the Lil Lolita Boutique Challenges! When she asked I was so over the top honored and excited I swear she would've hear me squeal way down under had she been awake when I read the email! LOL
So, enough waffling as they say (I hope I'm using it in the right context!)....on to my card for this week's challenge to use the colors Purple, Pink & Cream!

I used the ever gorgeous Lylah for this one and decided to give her leggings as I've seen done rather than socks. I think it's so cute - my girls wear leggings a lot with their skirts. Purple is my favorite color & I do use a lot when making cards but pink with it kind of threw me for a loop! I found this gorgeous DP in my scraps and it just evolved from there. She's colored with copics & I used a little bit of glossy accents on the prezzie if you can tell. I used the Nesties Labels 10 as my card base shape and had to add some Tim Hotlz tissue tape that I just adore. Plan on seeing that a whole lot!!! So, I hope you like and please be sure to check out what the rest of the Lil Lolita Ladies have designed for you today! They are fabulous as always. I'm so happy to be part of this amazing team - I know I say that every week, but it's just so true!
