BasicGrey Challenge #35

On the BasicGrey Challenge Blog this week.....

"This weeks challenge is a really tasty one :), as its nearly summer what better way to celebrate than to have a challenge inspired by a hot summers day favourite treat , that's right Ice cream :), this weeks challenge we would like you to be inspired by your favourite ice cream flavour, you can be inspired many ways by your favourite ice cream (as you will see by our DT creations), so let your imaginations run wild, and we cant wait to see your tasty creations and just for fun here is a mouth watering picture of a Knickerbocker glory to inspire you :) (please note that this picture is not the challenge, there are no rules against using this picture to inspire you though :) )"

My favourite ice cream is vanilla clotted cream ice cream with honeycomb - yum yum and I also love vanilla clotted cream ice cream with a scoop of clotted cream and strawberries - even yummier !!! I really do think that Cornish clotted cream ice cream is THE best.

So, for my card I chose the colours cream, brown/beige and red/pink.

The base card is swiss dotted Bazzill.

The patterned papers are BasicGrey "Bittersweet".

The cream card is from The Papermillshop.

I used an X-Cut corner rounding punch for all the rounded corners.

The image is a Sugar Nellie stamp called "Summer Ice Cream" and is available at Funky Kits and has been painted with distress inks.

The flowers have been punched with a large and medium EK Success Retro Flower punch. The pink brads are by BasicGrey. I also sprayed these with some gold glimmer mist.

The ribbon is from my stash.

You must hop over to the blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous creations - they are sooo yummy and you won't be disappointed.

Just in case you did not see the NEWS FLASH last week on the blog.......
