Hariette with Ice Cream
Crafty Sentiments Designs provided this adorable cute image on their blog for free with the only stipulation being that they would like everyone to use it to join in this week's challenge (Summer Fun). Since I was caught up on most of my DT work and had a little "free" time, I thought I'd give it a go. I knew I wanted to use sunny yellow, and of course, I just HAD to use the ice cream DP!
I printed the image to X-Press It brand card and colored in everything except the pinafore using Copic markers. I paper pieced the pinafore. My card base is white with a layer of green, then the pretty yellow gingham paper. I cut the ice cream paper into a 2" strip and matted it with the green. I then cut a flourish using Cheery Lynn die B117S (Mini Fanciful Flourish). I matted my image with green and then built my card with the layers. I topped it off with the pink daisy type flower and the circular birthday sentiment.
I think little Hariette looks quite summery in her green, white and yellow frock, don't you? Of course, I can eat ice cream all year round, but you have to admit, there is nothing like that cool cone on a hot day (and trying to get it all eaten before it melts and drips down your arm -- LOL).
