Party Time Tuesdays Challenge #196


Today I am posting this month's project for 

where I am proud to be a 'Party Planner'!  :)

My card this month is a fun birthday card, using this cute ice cream blueprint stamp from Tim Holtz.

I used my Cricut to cut out the card itself, and loved the fun shape of this design.  

 Then, the fun part was making my 'ice cream'!  :)  I used some embossing paste and colored it with some distress ink.  I just love the texture it brings to the card. You definitely want to let this dry thoroughly before finishing the card.  

The inside is just a simple Happy Birthday:
