A Big Birthday Cone — FMS257

We’re ready with another sketch for you over at the Freshly Made Sketches site, and this week the fabulous Jen Mitchell is our hostess.  Take a look at what she has for us:

fms-final-257-001I love this sketch!   You can use so many different images with this.  I ended up keeping my card very true to the sketch and made a birthday card because I never seem to have enough of those.

Rather than feature a birthday cake, I decided to make a birthday ice cream card.   I do love cake, but ice cream would be my preferred birthday treat.  I chose to make a mint chocolate chip ice cream cone for this card.  I can never decide which is my favorite flavor — chocolate, chocolate chip cookie dough, strawberry… I always have the hardest time deciding which flavor to get at the store.  This isn’t helped by the fact that all three of my children have different favorites too.  What is your favorite flavor?

big-birthday-coneI used the Biggest Birthday Ever stamp set and coordinating Wish Big Framelits dies.  The color scheme is Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso.

The sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set.

big-birthday-cone-close-upThis was a quick and easy card to make.  The hardest part was choosing the flavor!  🙂

We hope you’ll join us and make your own card using the sketch.  We love to see what you create.  Meanwhile, be sure to hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Mmmm, ice cream. Now I admit that I still prefer cake but good chocolate ice cream is a close second. Yes, plain old chocolate. Love the Coral with the Mint! Such a fun card.

  2. This is such a great card Amy! I love that ice cream cone! It’s so fun! The polka dot background is perfect! Don’t even get me start on how much I love the sequins!!!!

  3. Ice cream for a birthday? That’s right up my alley! When I was a kid I always got either coffee or black raspberry ice cream. I think they are still my faves! Great card. Love the colors and the fabbo texture!
