Sweet Birthday!

Hey All! Hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer day! We're having a fun time getting ready to take a family trip...can't wait for that beautiful blue water! We're also really excited to be with our extended families...YEA!!

My card today is featuring a sweet little Lizzie Anne Ice Cream cone and sweet sentiment. The stamps are from the Sweets and Treats stamp set. An Ice Cream cone...not many better things on a hot summer day, right!?

To start my card, I stamped my cone-in choclate chip ink on chocoate chip paper. I cut it out and got it ready to be topped with some delicious ice cream! I stamped the scoops of ice cream in Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry ink on the coordinating cardstock. I cut them out and topped them on my chocolate chip cone. I used my FUN Circle Scissor Plus cutter to cut my whisper white and Bermuda Bay circles.

For my card, I started with a whisper white card base. I cut a lovely layer of Crushed Curry, and attached it to my card. The scalloped circle behind my ice cream is a piece of patterned paper that was a scrap unearthered in putting my stampin' space back together...Isn't it a fun one!? I just cut the design right out of the paper and thought it was a great addition to this card!

I used my fun new fiskars scallop edge punch (see the little tiny scallops along each of the scallops?!)and a strip of Chocoate Chip cardstock to make the fun scalloped border. I attached the border over the patterned paper scallop circle-then added a little strip of velvet ribbon. I just attached my ribbon with glue dots along the way! I added my sentiment(also from sweets and treats set) with chcolate chip ink.

Once my ribbon was down, I attached my circles and ice cream cone...and for the "cherry" on top, a mustard button!

Even though these colors are a bit more "fall" than I'd normally use in the summer...putting them with an Ice Cream cone...helps them be perfect for any time!

Hope you have a great day!! Take care and I'll be back soon!!
