Cool Summer Treats

This week, the challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges is to incorporate a cool summer treat or treats -- think lemonade, watermelon, ice cream, popsicles -- into your paper craft.  I immediately thought of ice cream.




I had a lot of fun paper-piecing -- or maybe I should call it paper-layering -- the ice cream cone. The cherry just had to have a little Glossy Accents. And the wavy blue patterned paper made me think of the beach or a pool, another cool summer treat! 
Our sponsor this week is our teammate, Deena -- she'll be giving this week's challenge winner a choice of three images from her Etsy store, A Creative Need.  So think cool, refreshing thoughts and come and play along! 
P.S. Did you see that Crafty Creations Challenges has a DT call right now? You can read the details here. You have one more week to apply!

The blue paper is so perfect, and I love that it's one of the JS papers! This card is awesomely CAS, Lindsey! The glossy cherry is a perfect detail, and there you go again with your perfect embossing. :)

That glossy cherry is my favourite part of the card but the whole design is bright and summery.

Cuteness! I love the layered ice cream cone and the waves on the reverse wonky rectangle is fabulous. Love the corner details, too!

Very nice card! Love the shape of the frame you used! And the paper piecing really makes the colors come out fabulously! Pretty!

Cute and summery, yes, but what really kills me? That shiny cherry on top! Perfect.
