Just Chillin'

Here's a card I made that was supposed to be for this weeks challenge over at Crafty Catz which was Anything Goes with the twist of Ice Cream, either the item or flavours/colours of.  Well unfortunately I have been so busy that I just never got my card made in time, which seems to be the story of my life at the moment!  So I thought I'd come on and share it now that I have finished it! lol  

I have used this wonderful 'Bacon in the sun' image from bugaboo who are the sponsors for this weeks challenge and I went with ice cream flavours/colours, my chosen flavour being Neapolitan. The papers are MM Cosmopolitan, the image is coloured using copics and chameleons and I finished off with some ribbon, flowers and enamel dots from my stash and a stamped sentiment from PTI.

Both images and sentiment and I have used the masking technique for the images.  I have teamed them up with paper from MME and some coloured cs. I have finished off with some die cut leaves, prima flowers and some gems.
