Sweet Sketch Wednesday

(Green, Dark Pink, Light Pink, Orange)

Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday Everyone!!! For Week #7 Arlana not only has a fabulous sketch for us to work with but an added color challenge. For my creation this week I pulled out some old & new goodies. I choose some DP that was in The Spring Matstack by DCWV that had all the required colors. I then used some Retired SU Colors (Marigold Morning & Rose Romance ) that I have been hording and matched perfectly. Some of the new toys I played with is the NEW Sizzix Dots Embossing folder. It's dots are larger then the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. I also used my Martha Stewart Ice Cream Cone punch that I HAD to HAVE but never used. The cones are embossed with my new Quickutz Stripes Label Embossing Folder and chalked in brown and the scoops of Ice Cream have been glittered for some added dimension. This was a real fun card to make.
