One More Scoop

     When it comes to ice cream, I admit that I love it -- any flavor, any time of year, with any kind of added goodies.  Unfortunately, it's now banned from the list of things I get to enjoy because of my diet-controlled Type 2 diabetes.  And I do miss it, especially in heat wave weather like we've had for more than a week now.  But that doesn't mean I can't enjoy images of its cool sweetness on my cards.  :-D


Since the image is the freebie at From the Heart Stamps
I used the sketch from the challenge there also.

Sketch155

     The image is colored with ProMarkers, die cut with a die from Spellbinders, and I used chalk to highlight the embossing on the die cut.  I added a circular mat, also cut with a die from Spellbinders, and matted that with black card stock, fussy cut into a circle.

     The papers are scraps which originally came from Authentique.  I embellished the card with a bow, a layered flower with a brad and a pearl - chalked to give it a touch of color, and a bow with a pearl.  Finally, I added a trio of pearls to the upper corner.  The sentiment is part of the image set, printed, hand cut and matted, then hand cut again.

This is probably the best kind of ice cream to enjoy NC!! :) My hubby can't eat it without getting sick because he's lactose intolerant. So our eating of ice cream has went way down due to this, but I try to enjoy it while I can when he's not around because I know he loves it.

Your card is super fun and I just love the colors with those pretty plaid papers here!! Brilliant design!! HUGS

Connie, this is so pretty. Love the pink and red and fun plaid paper. I think this is better than real ice cream, because there are zero calories. Love your card. Thanks for joining us at FTHS!
