Happy Days!

Cricut, Simply Charmed, We R Memory Keepers, CardzTV Stamps, Peachy Keen Stamps
Welcome to another FABULOUS week over at FCCB!  This week we are challenging you to create a "Cool Treat" project.  Summer is the perfect time for popsicles and ice cream, right?  And with school right around the corner, we need to soak in as much of summer that's left!  My card is a 5x5 this week and my base card is a fun hot pink.  I have an aqua colored mat and some FUN glitter paper alongside super cute cool treat pattern paper (from Recollections All Seasons pack).  I used some We R Memory Keepers baker's twine and of course a PKS for the cute face.  I did color the eyes with a white gel pen and used some ColorBox Chalk Ink for the rosy cheeks.  My Happy Days! sentiment stamp comes from CardzTV "Happy Days" stamp set that I was lucky enough to win after a challenge with Mary.  The popsicle comes from Simply Charmed and is popped up on two thicknesses of foam tape. 

Here is a better shot of how fun and pretty the yellow glitter paper is - I LOVE IT! I am super happy with how this card turned out, and I have a video for you to see how it all came together, hope you check it out!
