Ice Cream Cone Celebration!

Hi Friends!

I'm hosting the Inspiration Challenge on SCS this week!  Come and join me!!   The webstore is Patina , and I chose this "Celebration Platter" as my inspiration piece.

The triple scoop cone was made with a Sizzix die and the colors were intended to mimic the colors of the platter. I used the "Simple Stories: Designer Cardstock Paper Pack - Life Documented" collection.  It comes with coordinating letter stickers that I used along with some Paper Studio fibers to create the bunting.

I went to an antique store near my office this week and found some old, and very cheap, vintage books to use in my card making.  So on this card, I used a page from one of the books to make the scalloped border and one of the "scoops". I doodled around all the pieces, added some faux stitch markings and sponged the edges with black Chalk ink.

Come join in the Inspiration Challenge this week!!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
