I scream, you scream...we all scream for ice cream!

...except that I don't actually like ice cream, so I'm not sure what possessed me to make this card! Anyway, it's all very simple...I cut the cone freehand...then embossed it using my Sizzix/BasicGrey 'Plaid' folder to make it look like a waffle cone', then cut the 'scoops' of ice cream from scraps of card using a die from my Marianne Designs 'Cupcakes' set...then embossed those using my Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder. I added a 'flake' cut from chocolate brown card, embossed with my Cuttlebug 'Forest Branches' folder...then sprinkled some adhesive pearls on the 'scoops' to match my Hero Arts sentiment (from the 'Cupcakes' set).

Oh Helen this looks YUMMY!! Love the waffle cone (very clever) and that's certainly a 'sky scraper' of an ice cream cone! Adorable!
