Another Digi Paper Freebie ~ and My Ranger Ink Card! :)

Hi Everyone!
I have been a busy girl creating lots and lots of digital paper packs to start offering for sale very soon!
I can't wait to share them with you! 
I promised to give another freebie paper to my followers this week so I just created it this one for you  today.
I liked it so well that I couldn't wait to make a card with it! :)
Here is my True :D Doodle Designs  "Freebie Paper Card".

I am getting ready to start work on a huge special project and several companies have sent me product to use for it.
Am I a lucky girl or what?  ;)
The UPS guy brought me some major happy mail from Ranger Ink yesterday!

 I used tons of their product on today's card but I thought I would share the reasons for the color scheme of my freebie paper. 
In the package, Ranger Ink sent me, there were some Archival Ink pads and they are all super pretty but the Aquamarine is now my all time favorite color! It is stunning! 
My vibrant Queen Ann's lace is in full bloom and that is my favorite color of pink. 
So, I took these 2 colors for today's freebie!

I have never tried Ranger Ink's Perfect Pearls Powder so I couldn't wait to try it. I just used a touch of Turquoise and Berry Twist because I wanted subtle colors on my heart so the sentiment would pop.
The sentiment is done with their Archival Ink in Aquamarine. I then covered the entire heart with Perfect Medium and then with their UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) and heated it with a heat gun.
I took some of their Pastel Raspberry Liquid Pearls and added dots around the heart.
Here is a True tip: Allow your "pearls" to dry about 5 minutes then take a piercing tool and very gently push down in the center of each with a small twist. It gives your pearls a bit of a "rosebud" appearance!
I added even more sparkle to my Prima flower with some of Ranger Stickles in Star Dust.

The pretty cardstock is Turquoise and Brilliant White from Discount Card Stock.
The designer paper is by me.... remember it's today's freebie!
The pearls in the corners are White Gradient Pearl Stickers from Creative Charms that I colored with a Copic marker to color match.
I used Spellbinders' Heart and Scalloped Heart Nestabilities.
The sentiment is from Verve Stamp's "Thankful Hearts".
