Ice Cream Anniversary

Okay...not sure what's up with me lately, but the Neapolitan ice cream colors have become my new favorite. I need an extra special card for my daughter and her husband because I'm going to be very, very late getting their anniversary card to them. I really like how this turned out.


The heart stamp was retired long ago by CTMH, the damask background stamp was the CTMH Stamp of the Month earlier this year. And, since CTMH Heart to Heart is doing a doily and lace challenge, I thought I'd enter it there as well as at Mojo Monday Sketch 200. The doily is even an old CTMH product. Yeah...used to be a demonstrator with them, back when they were D.O.T.S.

I used a Versamark pad and then embossed with clear powder to create the background. Other products include Nestabilities, a square punch, three sizes of flower punches, sanding block, pearl accents, and a little bit of ribbon.
After all this, I think I'll run upstairs and see if there is any ice cream in the freezer. Might help me stay cool in the heat wave we are having here. Thank goodness my hubby installed a couple small air conditioners we've been carting around for years.

Until next time,
Becca
