Mmmmmm Berry Sweet!



Happy Wednesday everyone!

A few weeks ago, I landed a guest designer spot for Doodle Palace, and today is the day. Whooo Hooo! I'm so excited! I even got to choose the challenge theme, which is really awesome! For the challenge, I chose red, green & white, because summer reminds me of strawberries, and it is my all time favorite flavor & fruit. One of the restaurants here has the most yummy strawberry pie ever, and its only available in summer! I'm always so excited when the strawberry pie is back! Yummy!

Please stop by Doodle Palace this week, and play along in thier Red, Green & White challenge. They also are having a design team call starting June 28, so check out the current challenge post for details on that, too!

Since I love strawberries so much, I wanted to do a strawberry card. The background paper is a scrap from my stash. I had used it on a recipe layout last year, and threw the scraps in my scrap box. It is perfect for this card! The white lace is from a mixed bag of fibers and things that I received in a swap. I had thrown it in with my fibers and had forgotten about it, till now. I'd have liked to have some frilly lace to use instead, but this is all I had, and it seems to work. The paper flowers are by Prima and I used skittles for the flower centers. I also added a couple sprays of pearls, to add a little more elegance to the card.
One flower in the bottom corner has a cute little ladybug button added to the center.

I'm ashamed to admit that I dont remember where the digi image is from. I got it as a freebie and saved it for later use... That was back before I had enough sense to save images in folders sorted by designer name. So, to whomever this image belongs, I apologize for not giving credit... But I don't know who you are.

If anyone knows where this image is from, please leave a comment and let me know, so that I can give the creator of this wonderful image proper credit.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
