Ice Cream

Good morning to mt crafty friends and  followers I hope that you are all well and have had a great week. My card today is one I have made specifically to enter into Live and  Love Crafts Challenge Ice Cream. I rarely make cards other than DT ones for this reason but just occasionally pop my cards into challenges if they fit the theme. However last year I won two brilliant Paper Nest Dolls stamps in a candy draw over at Tracy Payne's fabulous blog. I keep looking at them but never quite knew how to use them till I saw the challenge Ice Cream and thought perfect. Problem is I'm entering this only a couple of days before the challenge ends as  I've had lots of things on this month and a lot of DT stuff as well but I've made it . So enough of my waffling.
The stamp is called Roller Waitress Avery and  this is what I've made . A bit OTT even by my standards but it is Live and Love Crafts !!

Your card is as sweet as the theme. The image is darling and I love the "perfect day" accent. That's my kind of day! :o) The bead stems reminded me of sprinkly-topped sweetness, too, and I love the butterfly border. :o) Such a gorgeous card in every way.
