CAS-ual Friday CFC11

The theme for CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week is Sweets & Treats, and I'm just squeaking in on the last day. We are to make a clean and simple card using something sweet.

My stamp collection is fairly limited in this category. I have a couple of cupcake stamps, but I wanted to do something I hadn't done before, so I decided to make an ice cream cone. I drew my cone and ice cream scoop by hand and cut them out. I scored lines on the cone with my scoring board and stitched some seed beads onto the scoop for sprinkles.

I didn't have an appropriate sentiment, so I ended up using two from from PTI Mega Mixed Messages to make my own. The Sweet is from Sweet Baby. I just masked off the baby before stamping.

I'm somewhat pleased with how this card turned out, but I'm not thrilled with the shape of my ice cream scoop. I'll probably fiddle some more with it. Or else I'll just go stamp shopping! :)

Paper: PTI white, pink from scrap box

I think it's a fab of those short cup types, love the soft pink icecream scoop and sprinkles:)
My advice is...Go stamp shopping anyway, who needs a reason??

A FAB card, when I saw it I thought it was done by a Cricut or some other machine, great work, love it.
