Yippee for ICE CREAM!!

For the record, I do not discriminate.. I have a sweet tooth the size of Texas & if it has sugar in it, there's a good chance I will enjoy it. (in fact I live by the motto dessert first & then if there's room have dinner) But there is something just wonderful about ice cream, it is close to the top of my favorites list. And if it has chunks of candy in it & topped with hot fudge, its even better! I have to admit however that when I saw the release of this month's stamp set scream4icecream at The {Stamps} of Life I was sceptical of how much I would craft with an Ice cream set. I couldn't have been more wrong! As soon as I started to play with this set, the ideas just kept coming & coming!
So here is my first creation. I used papers from the DCWV Sweet Stack (except for the brown dots, that's from my scrap pile) I love how the paisley print on the green adds a "frostiness" & the glittery swirls on the pink looks like ripples of strawberry goo (or bubble gum?) & the grid design on the yellow worked perfect w/ the grid on the cone stamp. And because I couldn't get enough of this set, I even did the INSIDE of my card (I know..jumping out on a ledge lol!)
I spelled out the main sentiment using a set called basic4alphabet from The [Stamps} of Life & CTMH Cotton Candy ink, then framed it w/ stamps from the ice cream set. The little cone is part of the set too! How fab is that?!

So the 'recipe' for this one was inspired by this week's CPS sketch #217
