Sarah's Birthday Card

We hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!  Ours was so busy and it went by so fast!!  Sarah celebrated her 14th birthday with friends on Friday and then again with family and friends on Easter Sunday!  Here is the card that I made for her.

She can never get enough ice cream, so I thought the ice cream cone from the Honeycomb Happiness SU stamp set would be a great fit.  I used SU Soft Sky CS for my base card and then my first layer in Whisper White I ran through my Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.  Then I mounted a scrap piece of DSP to another piece of Soft Sky.  I stamped my ice cream cone 3 times and cut out the little scoops and colored them with Pool Party, Brushing Bride and Pretty and Pink.  The cone was colored in Creamy Caramel.  I then popped up the cone with some dimensionals and mounted it on a circle cut out with my large circle punch.  I stamped a small heart and the words 4you and added some rhinestones.  I thought it still needed something else, so I tied some ribbon I inked with Melon Mambo.

For the inside, I used the stamp set Party With Cake in Melon Mambo ink.  Sarah loved how it turned out which made me happy!  We had a great Easter.  Jennifer loved the Easter Egg hunt and got right in there hunting for all the eggs!  The girls had off today but it is back to school tomorrow.  Hope everyone has a good week!

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

Cute! Sounds perfect for her! Love the way you layered the scoops. With the way Easter moves around my son's April birthday sometimes falls very close.

This is a beautiful birthday card. I hope Sarah had a wonderful birthday day. This card is making me want ice cream on this grey and raining day. Thank you for joining the fun over at Funday Friday Challenges.
