Bday Mint Ice Cream Sundae/ ESS Sketch #92

It has been a while since I played along with Tracy Clemente's ESS Sketches that she creatively comes up with every Thursday.  But that doesn't mean that I wasn't using her sketches as inspiration, her Eat, Sleep, Stamp site is a great source for some much needed mojo! 

My friend's birthday was yesterday and I wanted to make a card using this Impression Obsession -IO Sundae Kisses image.  She just got an ice cream maker that she is enjoying using and thought this would be perfect!  But I was drawing a blank on the layout.  Thought of Tracy's sketches and found the inspiration I was looking for in this week ESS Sketch #92.

Here is what I came up with:

The sweet IO sentiment also fit nicely :).  I paper pieced the ice cream bowl and glazed the cherry.  I also used Martha Stewart fine iridescent white glitter for the whip cream.   The ice cream is suppose to be Mint flavored ice cream with some hot strawberry fudge on it.  I love the taste of this combination.  I could eat it all day!

Here is Tracy's Sketch.  I made a few interpretations like making the oval big enough to fit my cute sundae.  Love the strips because it allowed me to use a the busy cherry pattern paper without overwhelming the card.  And got to use a cute edge punch!

This image makes me want ice cream! AND an ice cream maker does sound like fun... hmmmm, the possibilities..... wishlist!

Thanks for stopping by!
