Eat Ice Cream!

I like the title of this card 'lets party and eat ice cream' ... I wish!!! I made the card following the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches #118, the inspiration comes from Partytime Tuesday - a summer birthday card and the colours are inspired from The Lollipop Ladies - rainbow swirl (pink, purple and yellow with swirls!). I struggled to begin with but in the end I am happy with the way the card turned out!

The ice cream cone has been scored - I remember when I was a child that the ice cream cones use to have scored marks thru them I am not sure about now as I don't bother with the cone and just go straight for the ice cream in a bowl (and yes I also lick the bowl clean ... yep approaching 40 and I still do that in the privacy of my own home!!!).

I stamped a swirl on the ice cream part and applied glossy accents to it - I would have embossed with embossing powder but my heat tool died the other day!
materials - Bazzill savannah, American Crafts wine and canary; Cosmo Cricket 'mitten weather' Jillibean Soup 'blossom soup' Prima 'paisley road' papers; Autumn Leaves 'stampology block stamps 1' Archival ' its a party' stamps; Versa Color opera pink ink; Kaisercraft pearls; twine; Carolee Creations alphabet stickers; Making Memories 'summer' cardboard stickers; cuttlebug 'floral swirl' embossing folder; Friskars corner punch; Spellbinders petite scalloped circles; Creative Memories circle cutters; Ranger liquid pearls and Inkssentials glossy accents.
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.
