To a Berry Special Couple…

No, you’re not imagining anything; I’m really posting a new project finally.  I’ve just had issues, which I know many can understand.

I was invited to be a guest designer over at Paper Creations Ink this week for their challenge number 23, “April Showers Bring May Flowers”.



Their sponsor this challenge is Tiffany Doodles, and this is my use of the image.  These flowers are special they bring mouth-watering fruit, too. It has been colored a couple of times and some pop-dotted on top of some, and others are just in the background.  Some are even behind this “small French lattice” by Cheery Lynn Designs.

Here’s a close-up of the strawberries:



The supplies used on my card are:

Image – Tiffany Doodles
Dies – Cheery Lynn Designs
Punch – Martha Stewart
Ribbons, Button, Gems – Stash
Glossy Accent and Open Stock papers

I’m entering this in the following challenges:

Crop Stop – button and bows

It came out real nice, Debbie! You do well with red and black. I just went strawberry picking yesterday and got about 10 pounds. Not as good as last year, its too dry I guess.:( They're a bit wizened.
