Sparkly Ice-cream

The challenge at Avadares for this month is to make it sparkle:

The freebie for September was a cute ice-cream so I decided I would work with that. 

The background paper is one from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.

The image is the freebie for September from Avadares.  I just love the expressions on the faces of the ice-cream cone and also the scoop.

I have a fair bit of sparkle going on.  I started with the sparkly ribbon and then decided that it didn't look sparkly enough so added a strip of diamond shaped rhinestones.  Still not enough the addition of some crystallina Kindy Glitz to the ice-cream and cones.


  1. This is so cute, Suze. Thanks for playing at Avadares and thanks so much for this lovely blog post.
