It's Good to Be Happy - Magnolia-Licious Challenge - No Designer Papers

Happy Tuesday, I hope you are all well!
It is time for a new challenge over at Magnolia-Licious and this is another scary one (grin) as we want you to ditch that Designer Paper, none of it allowed on your cards this time!
Now I know you will go "I can't do that" but you know it's not as difficult as it sounds. Maybe you could stamp a background, do some embossing (like I did), use fabric, anything just No Designer Paper!

Left of Center - No Designer Paper
Hiding in My Craft Room - Lots of Layers (1 entry only)
Totally Tilda - Food
Artistic Inspirations - Bright Colors (3 entries only)
Memas Crafts - Ribbon and Flowers
Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes with Ribbon

Art Impressions - Anything Goes
Fashionista Magnolia and More - Anything Goes with a "no nose" girl
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes or Color Challenge

Card Recipe:
Image - Tilda With Cherry Ice
Medium - Copic Markers
Oval Die - Spellbinders
Doily - Wilton
Ribbon - Sheer Cherry Pink by Really Reasonable Ribbon
Embossing Folders - Tiny Stars, Medium Dots and Hearts by The Paper Studio
Sentiment - Cloud 9
Ice Cream - Michaels
Strawberries - Doodlebug Strawberry Parfait

Now I just couldn't resist holding on to Summer just a little longer as with highs still in the 90's it still feels like it here in Texas and so Tilda With Cherry Ice seemed a perfect choice :)
Now I really hope you will join us at Magnolia-Licious for this challenge, we love seeing your creations!
