Cone or Cup

      This little card is another entry for our local stamp convention.  The theme is "Cone or Cup".  The only image I had with any icecream at all was this cute little House Mouse stamp.  This is a rather simple card for me and I'm not sure what it is missing but it feels unfinished to me.  Unfortunately, I did have to mail it in already to be able to make the contest deadline.

     The papers are from a small K&Co. pad called "Sweet Nectar". The papers are just so pretty and the colors so happy; that I wish I had purchased several of these.  I may look around to see if I can find more.  This one was purchased on clearance at Michaels.  (You know me, I live for sales.)

     The image was cut out and popped up onto a Nesties label that has been brushed with pink chalk, white was just too stark.  The three spotted layers were also popped.  This is a very small scale card for me.  It is an A2 size and they are a harder fit for  layers and embellishments.  Usually my smallest cards are a 6" square.

     This card is being entered into the House Mouse Monday Challenge.  The theme is Adorn it with Jewels.
