What's a Birthday Without Ice Cream?

Hello friends, welcome to this weeks Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge.  I know you must think I am crazy posting an ice cream cone card on February first, but that is indeed the Cricut Cut challenge of the week - Ice Cream.  My fabulous design team sister, Brenda, discovered that the first Saturday in February is "Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day!"  How COOL is that (did you see what I did there)?  Brenda has challenged us to use Ice Cream, in any form, on this week's project.

Because I am still enjoying making birthday cards (yes, we do have a family birthday this week too, my darling son-in-law, John), I used my ice cream on this ice cream cone birthday card.  I used two Cricut cartridges to create this card:  Doodlecharms and CTMH Artiste.  

The cones were cut with the Doodlecharms cartridge, though I did change up the layering a bit.  I used Artiste to cut the scalloped oval layered matting and the Happy Birthday sentiment.  I decided to attach my card front to a black card, for contrast.  I finished by adding red cherries to the cones and a Happy Birthday stamp inside.

If you have not already done so, please go by the Bitten By The Bug 2 blog and check out the yummie Ice Cream projects the design team has created to share with you!  And then whip up an ice cream project of your own and link in with us this week!!!
