You Are Berry Berry Special To Me For Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge

Hello Everyone!  As you may have noticed, I love to use Digi Design Papers on my cards. Unfortunately, my favorite Epson Printer gave out last week and I now have to use another Epson All In One Printer that I have.  The colors are not printing the same as my favorite printer use to do, so I've been trying to play with the settings. Until I get the colors right, I had to go through my stash of Design Papers to look for some papers to use for the upcoming cards I need to make.  I came across the Doodlebug Design Papers that I used on this card. I've been saving it in my stash for a while now, thinking someday I would use it for something special! I think that is why I like Digi Design Papers so much. You can print them over and over again in any size you want them to be in.

Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge, we are being hosted by the very talented Bev. This week's challenge is Anything Goes with the option to add a DOILY to a card or project . I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of this week's wonderful prize from Simon Says Stamps.

For my card, I used Doodlebug Berry Pink and Cupcake Swiss Dots Design Papers. Berry Tilda, from Magnolia-licious,  was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  For the scalloped frame, I used Hot Off The Press Scalloped Frames Template. I traced and cut the 4" one and then matted it with green card stock.

For the frame that Tilda is sitting on, I used 6" wide Scor Tape, lace that I found at JoAnns, The Art Institute Glitter #87 Hot Kiss  and Sizzix #655028 Frame #2 Die.  You first stick the Scor Tape on a piece of  white card stock. Then you place the lace on top of it and add the glitter. Once that is done, you can die cut it into any shape. I saw this technique demonstrated at a local stamp convention.  The glitter doesn't show up very well on the photo, but it looks really pretty in person.

For the "You are Berry Berry Special" saying, I used a Studio G Stamp that I found at Michaels. It was traced and cut out using Hot Off The Press 15 Lovely Labels Mini Bracket Label. The little strawberry is from a Japanese Sticker Set that I received from a very sweet friend. The doily and the lace is from my stash.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and All Natural Accents. For the flourishes, I used a die from Bosskut.

Thank you for stopping by my blog!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I'm entering this card in the Wild Orchid Crafts Week 51 - Eyes Down For Bingo Challenge - Ribbon and Lace, Flowers and Pink

Big Hugs,

Wow Suzan, glad to see someone finally using the older Tilda for a change.. Was getting afraid the older ones were out and the new ones were the only ones to use.. I personally love this Tilda and you have done her justice with you coloring and the lace around her frame!! A beautiful summery card.
Hugs, Jean

Berry-licious sweet Suzan! Adorable coloring and designing for this cute Tilda!
Pretty doily! What brand is it if you don't mind sharing! I've tried digi papers a few times but I don't plan far enough in advance...ugh...down to the wire I have to go with some from a pile! lol It'd be so awesome to have 250 feet of counter space so I could leave everything out in stations! lol Really dreaming today, aren't I! TFS Suzan!
