Ice cream friend card

**Go here for my 100 follower challenge/giveaway!!**

I was able to sneak down into my scrap room for awhile yesterday during naptime, I was having crafting withdrawals!  I picked the colors based on the cute plaid paper I found in my stash, I love it when I find fun paper without leaving my house!  :-)

I used Smiley Cards cricut cart on my Gypsy to cut the ice cream cone.  I used My Pink Stamper's Fabulous Phrases for the sentiment stamp, I love that it goes all the way across the card!  All the paper I used is from my stash and the card base is from DCWV!  You can't see it very well in the picture but one of the lines is lime green and I tried to pull that color out using the lime green ribbon - it looks much better in person!  I used the Argyle Sizzix embossing folder to give the ice cream cone some texture.
I'm entering this card into the Cricut 360º challenge for this week, to create a project with the theme 'Refresh Yourself' and to me, in the awful heat this summer (or really anytime of the year!) - ice cream refreshes me!!  :-)

I'm also entering this into the challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut, to create a project for a friend!

Hope you have a great Sunday, thanks for stopping by!
