Ice Cream ?

Fashionable Stamping challenge last week asked for ice cream colours, I'm not really an ice cream fan, when I do have ice cream it has to be a chocolate coated one, Magnum or my favourite very dark chocolate bournville ones, sometimes I'll have a coffee one or when I can find it Maple Syrup ! none of these colours make for a very exciting colour scheme so I had to include a little pink although I really can't stand strawberry icecream . My card also follows Try It On Tuesdays sketch. I had been messing about trying to make vellum poinsettias so the flowers are left overs from that.The papers are all freebies from a magazine. We are off to London on Monday for a few days so won't be any crafting and worst of all I won't have any internet access !   I'm hoping I come back with a bit more energy and inspiration.

  1. Hi Joan, I certainly like the sound of Maple Syrup ice cream! Your card is beautiful, I just love that image. Hope you have a good break and come back itching to craft...A x

  2. Hello Joan
    I love Magnums TOO.... I ce cream colours are mellow and you have have designed a card that is just so but you have added some Chocolate, via the ribbon, it looks great.

  3. Yum, Magnums, delicious flavours Joan. Your card is gorgeous, and the colours match beautifully. Thank you for joining us at FSC this time.
