The ice cream and the cone are done with the rock ní roll technique. The ice cream is also embossed with clear ultra thick powder but before it was heated I dropped green glass micro mini beads onto the powder. I heat from underneath so the beads wonít blow away and they becomes secured in the EP to give a sprinkles effect. It feels so cool! I did a little direct to paper on the white layers edges.
Iím challenging myself to use more inks that get neglected and Mint Melody and Blush Blossom sure fit that category!
The Perfect Party set was donated by JusColorado for our charity work and I love using it, thanks Justine! The card will go into the soldierís box for them to send home and I plan to make some for Keiki also.

Mint to you - lime sherbet to me. It was my fave growing up, so this brings back childhood memories. We had a Maplehurst plant (long gone) a couple miles from our house, so we had ice cream fresh from the factory. They had a little shop in front. Yum. Thanks for the memories!!!
