Truly Scrumptious #15: End of Summer and a Sketch


 This week at Truly Scrumptious the theme is End of Summer and there's a beautiful sketch by the very talented Michele.  I loved working with this sketch and I know that I will be using this one again.  AND... Guess What? The very talented design team is looking for a guest designer to join them for  October and November.  Sounds like a lot of fun, so I'm going to throw my hat into the ring with this card as my entry. 
For me nothing says summer quite like an ice cream cone.  And I know that Tilda agrees!  Heehee.  This image is from the Magnolia Summer Kit.  It was sent to me by my friend Susan, who is always sending me something great--stamped images, links to good sales, helpful hints.  I keep telling her she should get her own blog so everyone will be able to benefit from her crafting expertise. 
 Here is a closeup of Tilda. She's colored with my Prismacolor markers and Bic Markits.  I love the cute way that her head is tilted.  Oh and look...Tilda chose Mint Chocolate Chip icecream.  She has great taste!  Hee hee. 
 
 I made little icecream cones out of polymer clay to go on the card.  I think they're so sweet, if I do say so myself! 
 
Thanks for looking and thanks for your comments!  I love comments! :)
