My Time to Create Sketch #34.....{Sweet} Wishes

Whoooo hooo! It's saturday so you know what that means....it's a challenge with Lauren Meader and the My Time to Create design team! I hope you'll join us and make something FUN this week!
the sketch:


my project:

So I altered the sketch in that I changed the offset rectangles behind the main image to circles...because I just CAN'T make offset squares look right (hee hee) AND I was trying to make this card coordinate with my gift card box that I had already made. So the sketch was the springboard for the perfect companion card!
I put the icecream cone from the My Cute Stamps Sweet Chocolate set to work here for our young friend who's turning 10! Also, my fave cuttlebug embosser, swiss dots, and the circles CB embosser which I flipped over and inked with white pigment ink to highlight the recessed areas. Looks like strawberry sherbet to me!

This is my gift ensemble! Fun huh? Oh! And I have to give credit to Rebecca Sower for the yellow gift box with a wire ribbon on the card...I had an old Fresh cuts tag from the Rebecca line that had these cute little boxes but not in the color I needed so I made one mimicking her example.

Be sure and check out all of the amazing sketch contributions from the My Time team:

Thanks for stopping by! I'm so glad you could visit. Have a wonderful weekend!

You make the bestest ice cream cards and gift boxes of anyone I know! They seriously look good enough to eat :O) Love your cone and the cake box. Such fun and fresh colors! I'm sure the 10 year old will (or already does) adore them both!
