Another Birthday!


Happy Birthday, Faith!!!!!!
I made this sweet card for one of my niece's who is going to be 15 next week!
I can't believe it! She is so grown up! And turning into a real cutie, too!

I used the Cricut to make this card. The ice cream cone is from the cartridge "Sweet Treats',
 cut at 4 inches.  I cut the ice cream 2 times so that I could pop up the top scoop with foam tape.
Before I put the ice cream together I ran the 2 pieces through a Tim Holtz/Sizzix Swirls embossing folder.  I ran the cone through the Stampin Up/Sizzix lattice folder. I thought it made the cone look like a waffle cone (my favorite!!) To add sparkle,  I put Stickles on the sprinkles and candle.


 The ice cream cone then was adhered to a doily. I dotted the designer paper edges with silver Liquid Pearls

One of my favorite blogs is "My Craft Spot". The challenge this week was anything sweet!
Well...what is sweeter than ice cream----my niece!!!!!
So, I linked this card to this blog.
