Ice Cream Cone Card

Ah, ice cream...a perfect element for a birthday card don't you think?  I cut this tasty looking ice cream cone using a file from my Summer Picnic SVG set.  I shaded the diecut with Distress Markers and a water pen.  Pink Stickles were added to the ice cream portion.  Yummy paper from Authentique ("Sweetness" ) was used underneath the diecut.  A "Happy Birthday" ribbon added the sentiment.  A portion of a punched (Martha Stewart) border highlights the wording.  On top of that are three pink gems.  Everything layered over tiffany blue card stock.
You can see some of the sparkle on the ice cream.
This is my June DT submission for a fun summer Challenge going on over at www.creativecuttingchallenge.blogspot.com.  You can play along too!
While the regular challenge is taking the summer off,  we're going to try something new!
STRUT YOUR (Creative Pointe) STUFF! CHALLENGE
So, how does this special monthly Challenge work? 
You can enter any project, from any date* (back linking allowed!) as long as you use an electronic cutting file from The Creative Pointe.  So if you've purchased or grabbed a freebie from one of our almost two hundred files, you can play along.  
If you haven't got a Creative Pointe file to use, grab one of these for free:  
We want to see what you create (or have created) with our files!  
I's your June chance to STRUT YOUR (Creative Pointe) STUFF!  
Two fabulous prizes will be awarded by random drawings each month this summer.
