Digital Tuesday Challenge #116 - Ice Cream Combos

Hi all our new weekly challenge at 
is all about using colours of Ice Cream
Our Sponsor this week is
Here is my DT card
I decided to go for Chocolate Trio, Dark, Milk and White chocolate
For my card I have used an 8x8 card base, the papers are the V&A dp, I have used the MS fan border punch, Crinkle Grand Oval Nesties and TH Tattered Flower Die for my flower. I also added some pearls, little brown flowers and sentiment.
The image I coloured with Copics, then distressed the edge of the die cut with TH Vintage Photo distress ink, the image is a new one from Simply Betty called Romantic Annie from the Victorian Steampunk range HERE

The flower I have made using different material, Brown Felt, white and brown netting and some from a pair of trousers, I threaded some ribbon into an 8" sewing needle and put it through the centre of the flower and tied a bow.  The sentiment is from Stamping with Dimension. 
I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
I hope you like my card but for some more wonderful inspiration please visit my DT sisters their work is stunning.
Hugs to all see you soon.

Ooooooh, fabulous card Lorraine! I'm sure you thought I've dropped off the face of the earth .... just a virus I picked up on my May trip to NY. Been sick in one way or another since May 24 and am now just feeling semi-human from a cold and sinus infection. I've looked at loved all of your work over the past month, just haven't had the oooomph to comment on any blogs. Sorry. hugs, eileen
