Ice Cream, So Sweet

Happy Friday everyone in blog world.  I have a sweet card for the Fantabulous Cricut challenge this week.  The challenge is summer dessert, i.e. ice cream, popsicle or fruit.  I decided to go with the ice cream/ popsicle theme.  I love ice cream in the summer, I eat it practically everyday. Not good for the waistline but the extra workouts make up for it.  So onto my card, I used a pre-made card base measuring 6.5 x 5.  
Here are the rest of the details:

Paper-Bazzill, Recollections and scraps from my stash
Cartridges- Everyday Paper Dolls, Create A Critter, Love You a Latte, DoodleCharms
Stamps-  Peachy Keen, Scrappy Moms Happily Ever After for the So Sweet sentiment and Kids Incorporated for the Ice Cream
Embellishments:  Rhinestones, GellyRoll pens, Ink, Glossy Accents, Swiss Dots Embossing folder

I had so much fun making this card and I'm thrilled with the end result.  I recently purchased the Love You a Latte cartridge and couldn't wait to use it.  I used it to make the Ice Cream shop instead of a coffee shop.  I added some faux stitching to the coffee shop sign and awning.  I also used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the awning.  I thought it needed a little something extra.  The ice cream sign is from the Scrappy Moms stamp set Kids Incorporated.  The sentiment says I scream, you scream we all scream for ice cream.  I taped over most of the sentiment and inked the ice cream portion only.

I can't wait to give this card to a special little girl I know.  She's turning 7 in a couple of weeks and she sure is sweet.

I'm linking this post to the following challenges:
