Summer Treats in Red and Turquoise

This card is in response to The Paper Players #250 challenge, for clean and simple summer treats, and also for the Sweet Sunday Sketch #274 challenge.

I’ll confess, ice cream is just not my favorite treat.  But I’ve had this little colored ice cream cone in my stash for a few months, back when I was practicing with my Copic markers.  So I broke it out for this little number:

BDAY-040-01The turquoise digital paper strip was a scrap sitting on the counter from my project a few days ago, so I employed it here.
