Myself and Choccy have used this fabulous Ice Cream Cottage digi from Hope Jacare Doodles. It reminds me of the iced gem biscuits I used to have when I was a kid and I used pink and brown as the main colours. I coloured the image using Promarkers and Flexmarkers and used a Nestabilities die to cut it out and created a matter layer with brown cardstock. The main base of the card is the same colour brown cardstock and I covered this with a spotty paper from the Sweet Owl First Edition pad by Dovecraft. The glittery patterned paper down the side is an offcut from another sheet in the pack. My first official use of a snippet in 2012 J The sentiment from my stash was trimmed down a little and then matted onto scraps of cardstock. Both the main image and the sentiment are raised on 3d foam and just to finish off I added a little punchie from a house shaped punch. Perfect card for a new home
