Happy ice cream day

Another ice cream themed card, this time using some offcuts of DCWV summer papers that I've had for a few years now. The ice cream was cut from a paper (it had two more layers on top, but I've kept it to three) and I added some stickles. I used some pink ribbon that I've had for ages either side of the DCWV striped offcut.

The sentiment was computer generated and printed.

This is another card inspired by Card caravan (the hybrid chick) 23 photo:

Recycled cupcake

The cupcake I've used on this card was cut out from a leaflet that came through the post today - too good to just put in the paper bin.

The offcut of We R Memory Keepers paper was already out on the work surface, so I used that with a couple of sentiment strips. The cake had some silver balls on it so I put some golden gems over them to match up with the golden foiling on the sentiment strips.

Colours are for Color throwdown 203:
