House Mouse Challenge#32 - Something Sweet

Happy Monday everyone..... Over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Blog - the challenge today is to have something SWEET on your card. It could be from a candy wrapper, could be the sentiment and a cake, chocolates, candy, fruit - whatever ans long as it is sweet. On my card the sweet is the Ice cream cone.... Thanks America for another sweet image... I coloured the image with prismacolour pencil crayons and gamsol. Clear embossed the candles and little party hats. My sentiment is a Rub-on. Added diamond stickles to the orange sherbet ice cream. Matted the image with Stampin Up brocade blue and pumpkin pie scalloped rectangle (nestability). Tied on the blue sheer ribbon (thanks America) onto the silver spiral clip. For the pinwheel background quilt block panel - I used Basic Grey dp called Oh Baby! Boy and white cuttlebug embossed numbers. I cut out two 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square of each, then I cut them in half on the diagonal. Made the pinwheel design by alternating the colours - make sure you get the pinwheel pattern.. Matted on brocade blue and pumpkin pie. I stitched around the edges and down the middle (both side) on the diagonals. Added the beautiful blue and green ribbon. Main image panel is up on pop dots... I am very pleased with how this came out.

Please come on over to the House Mouse Monday Blog and join us in the challenge. You just have to make sure you use one House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper image on your card/project.
