Scoops of Thanks


I'm so excited that Blogger has finally stopped tormenting me and is letting me upload photos again.  I was not a happy bunny on Monday...  

I've got a bright and yummy card to share today.  I used the design from the current RetroSketches challenge and the colours from last week's ColourQ challenge.  I loved the colours and didn't get a chance to play along but I thought I'd put them to use anyway - they gave me the perfect excuse to christen these Reverse Confetti dies and stamps.  I love this ice cream die - such a fun shape and it looks good enough to eat!  I tried a few different cardstocks before I settled on vellum for the centre panel - everything else just covered up too much of those happy stripes.  That makes my card eligible for the Just Us Girls vellum challenge so I'm playing along with them too.  

That's it for now.  Have a lovely day!
