BasicGrey Challenge 34

Hi everyone, Saturday and time for another BasicGrey Challenge where this week we have a lovely theme to make your project inspired by your favourite icecream flavour, yummy! The girls have come up with some fantastic cards with all their favourite combinations so I hope you can join us this week. The challenge prize is sponsored by the Glitter Garden with some lovely goodies for the lucky winner.
I've used Bittersweet papers as they included all my favourites of choc, coffee, raspberry ripple and cornish clotted cream (I do like icecream :D) and I've used the papers to make ice cream scoops by cutting our some circles with nesties and then reshaping a bit with scissors. The cone is cut from kraft card and embossed with a cb folder as is the background. Did some sponging with walnut stain ink around the ice cream scoops, I'm very greedy with three of them! Added stickles in pink and stardust for sprinkles too. The card blank is cut into a tag shape with added ribbon, an eyelet and gems to finish.
I've received this lovely award from my blog buddy June and it's a very sweet one so thank you very much June for thinking of me. If you haven't already received this one and I'm sure you probably have by now, please take it for your own blog. TFL and see you tomorrow with my CC card. Have a good Saturday. Chris x

You're just too clever again Chris - I thought it would be cool to make my own cone but then decided it would be a bit tricky. Then you make it looks effortless and so arty with the patterned paper - fab! xx
