Clearly Besotted and Papertrey Ink birthday card

Simply Create Too

Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Simply Create Too. This time we are asking you to 'keep it simple', so I hope you will join in with us this time.

I came up with this card

I took a small panel of card and stamped the Papertrey Ink gingham stamp from the Bitty Background set in picked raspberry distress ink. Next I added the Clearly Besotted sentiment from the Super Cool set beneath it, and when the ink was dry, I used the PTI Canvas Impression Plate to give a little texture. I then die cut the dish of ice cream and stamped it with Memento fog ink before watercolouring it with some distress inks, and then coating with Wink of Stella for some frosting. Finally, I added the wafer behind the ice cream and fixed it to the card, along with a little cherry from another set which I coated with glossy accents. You can see the frosting better on this photo:-

Why not pop over to the Simply Create Too blog to see what inspiration we have for you and join in by linking up your card.

I'd also like to play along with

AAA cards  who are celebrating their first birthday and I'd like to wish them happy birthday with a cherry on the top!
