Berry71Blue DT Reveal

Hi Girls,

Here is my 1st post for Berry71Bleu.  I am so excited to be part of such a fabulously talented International Design Team and on top of that I get to create with Marivic's gorgeous tags every month.  Pop on over and check out Marivic's Etsy shops -  Berry71Bleu  to see her amazing tags and also Zeus and Zoe which sells the most gorgeous kits and embellishments.

Sugar and Spice

I decided to take some inspiration from this month's challenge for my LO.  The flowers from Agnieszka's inspiration pic are all pretty pink tones which went perfectly with Marivic's gorgeous pink cake tag and as Scrapcake are sponsoring us with a fabulous prize this month I chose some delicious Scrapcake pp with pink roses.  The pretty white cake stand in the pic inspired me to use some lovely lacy paper doilies, and the yummy cake in the pic also goes perfectly with the cake theme on Marivic's tag.

List of Materials:  Berry71Bleu tag, Scrapcake and Prima pps, Pink Paislee 6x6 papers, Scrapmatts heart chipboard, Prima flowers, Craft Queen paper roses, Cheery Lynn leaf die, Glitz Design , MME sticker label, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, paper doilies, Glimmermist, Paint, Tim Holtz crackle paint

Prizes you could win for this Month's Challenge
We are proud to say this month our sponsor for the challenge winner -The Scrap Cake - will provide beautiful new collection - My Private Happiness the perfect collection for any season!  Thank you Karola!
