You Are 100% Sweet

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  Happy Saturday to those is the Southern Hemisphere and to every-one else - hold on - it is coming!  It is a HOT one here and the perfect day for a lovely cool ice-block - this one is calorie free and totally upcycled.  the image reminds me of Jelly Tip Ice Creams we had as kids - it was a real treat, especially as they weren't an every day thing.

The recycled image has been cut/embossed using the second largest die from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies. The sentiment from the 100% Sweet Sentiments Clear Stamps has been embossed using stamped Imagine Memento Luxe Ink in Rose Bud, with Clear Embossing Powder  that has been set using a Heat Tool.  Once cooled I have used a Chameleon Pens Marker in Mellow Yellow over the top and added sentiment stickers to complete the rest of the sentiment.

This has been layered onto a 14.5cm x 9.5cm card front - I have used older Authentique Paper for the card front.  this has been adhered onto slightly larger yellow card stock, followed by a slightly larger card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  

A strip of yellow ribbon has been adhered along below the die cut layer and white Ricrac glued across the centre of the ribbon.  A threaded pink button has been glued to the centre of the ribbon and Ricrac strip.
