Sweet Sunday.....Birthday Wishes

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

Time for a new sketch challenge over at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Blog

Here is the wonderfully layered sketch that we have to work with this week:

You know I love to layer up my cards. I started with a base of Crumb Cake card stock.
Then next up is some Early Espresso card stock and a layer of  Early Espresso DSP from the Neutrals stack.
Have I mentioned how much I love the new DSP stacks, the paper is awesome, dots, stripes and handwriting are a few of my favorites.
I knew I wanted to build an ice cream cone using some Watermelon Wonder card stock and make some "drippy chocolate" with the Early Espresso card stock so that was my starting point. I pulled out my Sprinkles of Life stamp set and begun to build my yummy treat. 
The cone is Crumb Cake card stock stamped with Crumb Cake ink. I fussy cut it out and sponged the edges a bit with more Crumb Cake ink. I added the base to the white card stock with some dimensionals. This set has a matching punch that makes things so much easier. I then punched out two scoops of the ice cream using the Watermelon Wonder card stock.
I added some "sprinkles" using Early Espresso ink. The chocolate topping is also made using the punch. I just hand cut the bottom after punching to make it look like drips.

The circle element to the side is Watermelon Wonder that I embossed with the Decorative Dot EF.
I added two small Flags to the side for element in the sketch. I used the small banner punch and the DSP is from the Cherries on Top stack.
The sentiment comes from the Build a Birthday stamp set.
I added a small little gold ribbon to the banners and the sticks are some skewers that I cut down.
I added some Crystal Effects to the chocolate on the cone and called it done.
Looks Yummy to me!!!

Be sure and head over to the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the girls did with this fun sketch!
