Ice Cream Sprinkles

Hello all my bloggie friends!
How are we all doing today?
Only nine days til Spring....now that should make us all happy!!

It's that time again for a new challenge at "The Sisterhood of Crafters"
Lisa is our hostess and she has chosen the beautiful photo below for our inspiration.


As soon as I saw it, I had a plan!
I knew I had these Teressa Collins candy dots and had in mind
either a cupcake or an ice cream cone!
As you can see the ice cream cone won out..lol!


My plan was to cut it out on my somewhat new Cricut Explore.
Which was fine, but I haven't hardly had time to learn to even use it,
and what I did learn I had forgotten.
Then during my absence from it, there have been many improvements
and updates.
So  what I thought would be a quick card, 
took way longer then I had anticipated...isn't that the way it always is...lol!!

I cut my cone rather large as I wanted it to be the"show piece".
The white of the cone was cut on Pearlized Esse White Metallic card stock.
If you could see it in person, you would see it has lots of shimmer.
The cone was cut from Kraft card stock.
The one thing I forgot to do was emboss the cone, 
but, it was too late as I had already adhered it down.

The back ground papers are DCWV "SWEET".
I bought this paper at a garage sale two summers ago..an entire pad for $1.25.
This girl has a sale every year of brand new papers and stamps.  
I usually make  a haul there!

The ribbon is the last piece of it I had....love the colors!
The sentiment is from SU Swirls & Curls Verses.


I am hoping this inspires you to head on over to The Sisterhood blog,
take a peek at what my "Sistahs" and our guest design "Step-sisters"
have to show you.
Why not join in with us, we would love to have you!!

Before I go, how would you like to be
a "sistah" with us?
We have a Design Team call out
and are looking  a few new designers
to join our already fabulous team!!
