I think my lovely ladies will LOVE it!

Trip to the Ice Cream Parlor

inspired by the lovely Mary Fish
I am really diggin' this New Ice Cream Parlor FREE DSP from the Sale-a-bration
catalog and the buttons and ribbon pack top it off nicely.
At first I wasn't to interested, but you know I love the Simply Scrappin Kits to make my scrap tins and mini scrap albums so this is right up my alley.Now I can't get enough of them.
This card uses the FUN FLOWERS DIE as the focal point
and the Afterthoughts Level One Hostess stamp set as the focal point.
The little yellow things in the flower I found in the cake section at a big box store and I have no idea what they are used for in baking but I saw flower buds for my card!
The button in the middle is from the SEW SUITE series the epoxy buttons.
I also used the tastefully trim die cut too.
These projects be in upcoming classes for Spring.

Using the Build a Blossom stamp set and the FANCY FAVOR BOX DIE along with the ice Cream parlor DSP with Pacific Point,Melon Mambo stamped the flower in Daffodil Delight ink.

A new twist on the handle
CHALLENGE: Can you figure out what die cut I used to make the handle?

Love this card using the baskets and blooms die and the eggs are made out of the ovals die in the ice Cream Parlor Series of DSP.
