I Scream, You Scream....BBTB2 Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, I am hosting over at BBTB2 and for our challenge I chose ice cream since July is Nat'l Ice Cream month. So we all got crafty using ice cream die cuts! For my ice cream card, I used the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge. I made a 4x9 inch tall card, love this size!! My card base is white, the pattern paper layer is from DCWV Sweet stack, then I used a chocolate Bazzil paper for the next layer, then topped that with a punched border from a MS doily punch.  I have a sundae die cut with chocolate, strawberry and vanilla ice cream with whipped cream and a sweet glittery cherry on top, cherry glittered with stickles. I inked my ice cream layers with distress inks, for the strawberry scoop I used Worn Lipstick, for the vanilla scoop I used Antique Linen, and for the chocolate scoop I used Walnut Stain. For the dish I used Broken China distress ink.  I used glossy accents to make my glass dish shiny and I also outlined the ice cream scoops then sprinkled white flower soft to give the illusion that the ice cream is frosty. Not sure I pulled that off, but think it looks cool anyway. lol The ribbon is from my stash and not sure where it came from. I layered the inside with the same papers from the front. I haven't put any sentiments on it because I'm not sure if I'm going to use this card for a birthday card or what. So I will wait to add the sentiments. Please go over and check out what wonderful inspiration my design team sisters have for you and then why not make an ice cream project and link up with us?!! Just please read the rules on the side bar at BBTB2. We so love it when you get crafty with us!!

Oh this did look frosty. Your outline glitter had the look of ice crystals forming. Great job on the G.Accents too...your dish certainly did look glassy. And loved the sparkles on your cherry too. You do the most amazing things with that cricut of yours! Liked the inside with the way you decorated it too. TFS & have a nice evening. Rest up! I am sure you need it. Hugs
