This card is one that would be great for any kind of celebration, and when the end of the school year rolls around, I'm always in need of celebration cards!

I used the ice cream image from the Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints 6 set, with a bit of masking, for the main image. The Viva la Verve April 2014 Week 4 sketch has a heart as the center element, so, after coloring the ice cream cones, I dry embossed a heart using a die, over the image. All the teeny hearts on the card came from the heart circle die cut that is behind the image. I added some Glossy Accents to the ones on the ice cream cones to make them look a little like cherries, then I liked it so much, I did the same to the rest of them, too. The "Sweet" sentiment is from an MFT Stamps set, and was heat embossed with a red glitter ep.
The inside is simple, but took a little bit of planning to be able to use the slivers of scraps that were left from the front of the card, but I do love using up those little scraps. ;) The sentiment is from the Birthday Sentiments MFT Stamps set.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a Sweet Week!
