Ice Cream Birthday Card

 
Here is a birthday card that I made for my daughter's friend, Amanda. She had her birthday party at Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor, so I took the opportunity to make another shaped card! :)  

 
Card base was cut using the Sweet Treats cartridge and sentiment is from Priceless Love Word Puzzle from Close to my Heart.

An ice cream card is not complete without glossy accents!  Used pop dots for the top layer and then added glossy accents for a "melting" effect!  Used D'vine Swirl embossing folder for the bottom layer.

Such a simple card but it took me longer to make than expected. Wasn't sure how I felt about it but I guess it turned out ok.  Birthday girl (and her friends) really loved it!  

I will enter this card to the following challenges:
  • Perfect timing with this card, I will also use it for the Shape Card Challenge over at My Craft Spot.  So stop by and check out all the other talented bloggers! :)
  • Thanks June for your encouragement to link this card to the summer challenge over at Betty Bee's Buzz.  Please check out this blog to see what other bloggers are reminded of when they think of summer!
