A Little Something Sweet

We have been a bit spoiled here in New England these past months with temperatures in the 80's when we're usually 80 feet deep in snow. I think I've become a little soft, because while I am grateful that we have finally had some rain this week it's gotten quite cold and damp!

So Dear May, I could use just a tad bit of sunshine today, and a little warmth to go along with it would be very welcome!

So in the hopes of some warmer days I am sharing this Ice Cream card with you today!

I used the recently retired (2 days ago!) Sweet Shop Designer Series Paper as a back drop for this tag. The banner from Perfect Pennants Stamp Set makes the cutest ice cream cone when stamped in Soft Suede, and it pairs perfectly with the top from the Cupcake Punch to make a yummy ice cream cone. This one is a combination of a couple of my personal favorites Strawberry (Pink Pirouette) and Mint Chocolate Chip (Lucky Limeade). The sprinkles were hand drawn, though personally I think that some sort of plastic or glass sprinkles would be a very fun thing for Stampin' Up! to add to their product line!

I have also embellished the center tag with White Waffle Paper ( sadly we might have seen the last of this fun stuff!)Calypso Coral Seam Binding - now on Stampin' Up!'s Carryover List, and a cute little heart from the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit Die - also a Carryover Item!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you were inspired to create something sweet!
