I Scream You Scream...

...we all scream for ice cream!  
Were you worried?

My card today is for the Michelle Perkett Studio "Hold On To Summer" challenge! 

These cute ice cream cones and the sentiment I used are a digital stamp from Michelle Perkett Studio Etsy store.  I printed them out twice and cut them apart for this card.  I saw the sketch at Lime Light Paper Crafts August 18th and was intrigued.  I also saw a card by Tammy one of our Michelle Perkett Studio Mermaids that she used this stamp and cut out an ice cream cone.  At that point seeing these two different things I was inspired to make this card.  

I colored the ice cream cones with Copic markers and cut them out, they are attached to the Spellbinders half circle with foam tape, I printed the digital stamp again on the gingham patterned paper and carefully cut off the sentiment so I could use it in my border strip.  The brown scallops are a die made by MFT Stamps and the flowers are an EK Success punch with slightly enhanced Dew Drops added to the centers.  

I hope you'll have time to play along in this weeks "Hold On To Summer" challenge at  Michelle Perkett Studio!  Stop by and see what our awesome Mermaids have created, I know you'll be inspired!
There's a $10.00 shopping spree for Michelle's Esty store to be won, we'll announce the lucky winner Monday, September 6th after 5:00 PM MST.

A super card Jan. I like the way you've cut out the cones and added the sentiment separately, it's very inspirational. Lovely colours too!
