Hey there, I have a few days off so I'm hoping to be able to make more cards for the Hope You Can Cling To card drive through Splitcoast Stampers to benefit breast cancer patients and their families.  Judy's challenge, Treat Yourself, is about treating ourselves to something decadent, yummy and delicious after a rough day.  She wants to see yummy edibles on our cards that have a touch of pink.

For this card, I'm using an Our Craft Lounge set called Life is Sweet.  The cherry was stamped first, masked then the ice cream was stamped.  It was cut out using the Out-of-the-Box with a Nestie technique.  The image was colored with Copic markers then Glossy Accents were applied to the cherries and ice cream dish. 

I found some metal tags in a craft store a while ago and have never used them.  I thought it would compliment the spoon perfectly so I dug them out.  StazOn ink was used on the tag because I didn't want to take a chance that the ink would rub off.  A twine bow completes the card.

Copic coloring:

Cherries:  R29, R27, R24, R20, E37  Ice cream:  R22, R21, R20, E59, E57, E37, E35, YR30  Spoon:  C5, C3, C0  Dish: BG11, BG10, BG0000  Table:  W3, W2, W1, W00  Background:  R0000  Inside image:  R22, R21, R20, E37, E35, E31, YR30, W3, W2, W1, W00, R0000
