Food Glorious Food

Hello, good morning, it's a nice sunny day here in Malta today, just perfect for a visit to the beach and some nice cool ice cream ............ just like the one I have on my card today.

This is my FIRST card for my new DT at Sweet Stampin' Challenge  :)  The theme this week is FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD and all the girls were given some cool fun images from Prairie Fairy to  play with.

For my card I chose this gorgeous triple cone ice cream image which I coloured with my promakers. I printed the ice cream three times and then cut and layered with foam for dimension.

Thought I should make something extra special for my first card ...
and so I made a Joy Fold Card for the first time.
I remember having seen a very similar card somewhere, with the image on the side holding the top fold, and thought it was perfect to go for my image. Unfortunately can't remember where I saw it so as to give credit.

The gorgeous main sentiment 'YOU are so sweet' is from the All About You stamp set from the All That Scraps store. .. which lucky me had won some time ago. There are twelve different sentiments in the set which all go with the word YOU, love it :)

Our weekly sponsor this week is 
Bunny Zoe who are offering one lucky winner a 10 Gift Certificate
gif maker

and our monthly sponsor is 
Prairie Fairy who is offering the winner 5 digis from the store
Prairie Fairy

I am entering my card in these challenges today.
- Top Tip Tuesday 37 - MORE THAN ONE FOLD
- Papertake Weekly - ANYTHING GOES

Thank you for looking today ... 

.. not going to the beach though  : (  

No one can or wants to come with me boo
