Allsorts DT #158 Ice cream colour inspiration

Morning everyone,
Are you all ready for a brand new 
Allsorts challenge?
This week my lovely teamie Emma has given us an 
Ice cream colour theme
 and I had such fun creating the card that I have to show you today. I think I've got quite a few ice cream colours on there and probably a few extra besides! Definitely chocolate, strawberry, mint and vanilla....
As I don't have enough background stamps I did another free hand design of a little ice cream cart, and the dark edges were a happy accident as I started distressing the edges in Vintage photo DI and I didn't like it so I went over it again with Stormy sky and loved it!

a better view of the otherwise hidden tag

the fun angle to show the depth to the card

Magnolia Tilda with kite - Sweet rainbow collection
Go Kreate shaped card die
Magnolia papers - Blue campion and bumble bee
Magnolia doohickey's tag, cloud, Tildas lace border and peony petal
SU and whimsy mini stamp sentiments
SU photo corner punch
Marianne creatable rolled flowers
1 large pink Magnolia flower
2 small WOC pink roses
ice cream charm, pearls and ribbon
Nesties foliage die

Challenge to enter:
TOMIC's 1st Anniversary - Anything Goes

I'm off to our local village carnival today as I've been volunteered to set up and run the stall for the preschool that I'm chairperson for, I got everything ready for it earlier in the week so it should go smoothly if all goes to plan! All we need now is for the weather to behave, it's been dreadful for half term and me and the kids have got a touch of cabin fever but hurrah for the weekend LOL!

I hope you are inspired to join us at Allsorts this week, don't forget to pop over to the main Allsorts blog for all the challenge details, prize and the rest of the gorgeous DT inspirational creations!

Whoops, nearly forgot to say that, whether you played along or not to my little teaser on my last post, as promised I have the answer to the question I asked. Could anyone tell which Tilda I used for the passport photo? Christa, you were the only one who guessed that it was Tilda holding flowers -  Be my Valentine Tilda to be exact! Thank you Christa for humoring me LOL!
Have a fab weekend everyone, whatever you are doing....
