Bitten By The Bug 2 Ice Cream Cone

Go here for my Blogaversary Give-a-Way.

Oh I love Ice Cream!! My most favorite is Dutch Chocolate that Blue Bell makes. Makes the best milk shakes, but good to just eat, too! So when I saw the challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2 was to make a project using the Ice Cream Cone from any Cricut cartridge, I was excited. Now this is the challenge that started Monday of last week. Yeah, I'm a bit behind. But hey, I got it done!! But I have to admit something here. I cheated. Yes, I'm a cheater. I dug and dug through my stash and found this paper pad that I totally forgot that I had and I let this great paper do most of the work for me!! So I cheated and labored very little on this card. I did cut my Ice Cream cone from the Once Upon A Princess cartridge. I used the Cuttlebug and embossed the cone using the Tiny Mosaic folder and used the D'vine Swirl folder on the ice cream. I cut two ice cream part so I could pop up the top layer. And no, I didn't go Dutch Chocolate. I went Chocolate Chip. I used faux brown half pearls for the chips. Then I added some in two corners. The great pattern paper came from October Afternoon-5 & Dime 8x8 Paper Pad. Hummmmmm, wouldn't it be great to get an Ice Cream cone for 5 or 10 cents again?!! The great sentiment is from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. Mary has also just released the new May stamps for preorder!! That's my card!! Hope ya'll like it!!!!
