Sweet Stampin' Guest Designer - Strawberries, Chocolate and Cream

** Just  a note to let you all know that I've started an Etsy store with my cards as my stash was getting too big! This card has been added there.**

Good morning and welcome to my last challenge as a Guest Designer at Sweet Stampin'. I've really enjoyed my time and I want to say a big thanks to team there for having me.

The challenge this week is a color challenge: Strawberries, Chocolate, and Cream. Sounds delicious I must say. :) The sponsor for this week is Pollycraft with the winner's choice of 5 digis! Be sure to stop in at the main blog to see what the rest of the team has created.

For my card today, I used Pollycraft's Lilybean Fairies - Clover Butterfly Wishes. I love these fairies and I want them all! You can find out how I made my flowers here and here. I didn't have red fabric, so I just colored them with my Poppy ProMarker.

The polka dot paper I used was actually a white polka dot that I colored with my Ivory ProMarker.

Stamps: Pollycraft's Lilybean Fairies - Clover Butterfly Wishes, I made the sentiment myself.
Paper: Echo Park For the Record & Dots and Stripes Metropolitan
ProMarkers: Poppy, Ruby, Burgundy, Ivory, Blush, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Tan, Sandstone
Accessories: Lace, Handmade Flowers (tutorials), Pearl Brads (Eyelet Outlet)
