Sweet Treats - Minty Ice Cream Cone - OSSAT #243

Hello, my friends.  How are all of you doing?  It's hot as blazes down here in H Town. We sure could use some of that rain we had way back a few months ago. I can barely stand to be outside at all. I did go out and work a little in my flower gardens and worked with my Milkweed plants trimming them up to get more plants for the Monarch butterflies to breed on. I was so excited this past week to have 3 of them hatch out of their cocoons and become beautiful Monarch butterflies. Now I think I may have a few more caterpillars on some new plants. I've got them tented, so I hope they'll be safe while they grow.

Well, on to my card for this fortnight's challenge over at One Stitch At A Time!  Our challenge for you this time is Anything Goes With Sweet Treats!  Yummy!  Here's mine.

The image is Minty Ice Cream Cone from Crafty Girl Designs. I used The Sweet Stack collection from DCWV and cut out some of the words on one of the sheets of dp for the sentiments. Then just added some pearls and some White Opal liquid pearls for the ice cream.  Copic Markers - E31, E33, E35. R22, R24, R27. I had used some markers for the M&M, but the liquid pearls kind of overpowered them, so I punched some circles out of c/s and put the M&M on them and glued them in the place where the original ones were.

Our sponsor this time is of course, our own Stitchy Bear Outlet Store and the prize pack this month for one lucky winner is :

I hope you'll hop on over to the challenge blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has done and then get yourself inky and join in the fun. You could be the lucky winner or one of our Top 3!  Good luck!
