Lollipop Ladies Challenge #4

Wow, I can't believe we are up to challenge number four already and how sweet do those icecreams look. I have to say I love icecream. Definately one of my favourite summertime treats.
I was going to make a card for this challenge but at the last minute decided to make a small treat box that could be used for a child's birthday party with a summer or icecream theme.
I found the idea's for the icecream and basket here. Rather than using the pink like I have, you could change that to green and it would be perfect for boy parties too.

I added ice stickles to the top layer of the icecream for a sprinkles effect and the cone is cut from Kraft cardstock. I drew a criss-cross pattern with SU creamy caramel marker and then sponged the cone with vintage photo distress ink. With the basket I added the ruffle ribbon and actually made this myself. I have loved seeing ruffles on many friends layouts and cards and decided it was about time I give it a go. So I took out my needle and thread and started. I am pleased with the end result. Now that I have been brave enough to try it and like the result you will be seeing a lot more ruffled ribbon on my blog. Sorry in advance, hehe.

Pop on past the Lollipop Ladies site and see the amazing creations the rest of the fabulous design team have done for your inspiration.
I look forward to seeing your creations. Last fortnights were wonderful. Keep up the great work.

Thanks for looking.
