DT card for Craft Room Challenge 'Summer Birthdays'

Well those 2 weeks have just flown by and it is time again for another challenge at the Craftroom .  I have had a wonderful time visiting all your blogs for your paperdolls/altered dolls and they were all magnificent.  A tough challenge but you all rocked it!

So onto today's card

The backing papers for this are from the 'My minds eye'  'Summer collection', they have been layered onto pink and green and a Fiskars boarder punch has been used on the top layer, and wrapped some cross stitch thread around it too!

The image is a Penny black stamp called 'Hot but cool' and has been coloured in pro markers.  I have rounded off the corners of the piece she has been stamped onto and added pink and green layers and mini gems in the corners.

The icecream charm has been made by me using a UK stamp icecream onto shrink plastic, coloured in pro markers holed and shrunk, then hung on some jump rings.

The sentiment is a Lili of theValley stamp from one of their stamp sets.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges My favourite thing (icecream!)

Thanks for stopping by :o)

Have a great day
