The Lollipop Ladies - Challenge #4

It's time for another sweet challenge over at the Lollipop Ladies - I think you will love this one - check out this inspiration picture:

The challenge theme is ICE-CREAM and the added bonus challenge is to use KRAFT.
Here's what I've created:

I started out with this card and had a design in mind....... but it ended totally different.  Nevertheless, i'm quite happy with the result - it's a collage style card!
I was inspired by the colours and texture which I've incorporated into the card.
The base card is Kraft - then I've added panels of mambo melon and apricot appeal.  I've used my Cuttlebug to add some texture to the Kraft cardstock - it reminds me of a waffle cone!
The ice-cream wildcard is by October Afternoon. I've made up a cluster of embellishments including a doily, stamped ice-cream image and a ruffled vintage bookprint flower with a brad to the centre.
Lastly, I've added some coloured buttons to include all the colours in the inspiration picture.
Here's a closer look:

We'd love to see you join in with this challenge - pop over to the Lollipop Ladies blog and view all the details.  And be sure to check out all the fabulous work from the other Design Team ladies.  Look forward to seeing what you create for this sweet challenge.
