Here's The Scoop?

Morning There,

A little update here...DIL in grandson should arrive today! Will post pics when I get them.

I thought this was a pretty cool birthday card. I utilized the Yummy cartridge for the image and paper. Couple things I did that really changes up the card is corner round only two corners. Such a little thing...but well judge for yourself.

Using the cuttle bug Swiss Dot folder for the green background (definitely a must have...I use it all the time) also put the cone part through a folder and it was Argyle. Worked okay. Ribbon was a little piece of the stash I got at the scrapbook convention and then decided on the brown tag and some dew drops to balance off the card.

The fun part is I put a wobbler behind the green scoop so it wiggles like it's gonna fall. :)

Lastly some diamond stickles on the green ice-cream that I like to think of as pistachio...AND the pick scoop was going to get Cotton Candy Pink BUT .....I was almost out and couldn't seem to get the stickles to run to the tip so I had a FABULOUS idea...pop it in the microwave for just a few seconds and it would help to liquefy it  more. I'm full of good ideas, however, two things probably contributed to the disaster 1) I didn't take the lid off of the tiny container 2) tiny container 10 seconds to much.
Needless to say it exploded in the microwave and I was left cleaning up Cotton Candy Pink Stickles from everywhere.
I hope you enjoy your day....I'm waiting anxiously by the phone...although I'm not expecting news till late today.
