Ice Cream Colours at Allsorts

Good morning. Hope you are all keeping well and those not I wish well soon.
We have a busy weekend ahead of us as it's Aaron's birthday tomorrow (he will be 27) and Jamie's birthday on Monday (he will be 29).  We did plan to have a BBQ tomorrow but the forecast isn't so good so not sure what the contingency plan is???

Anyways today I would like to share my DT card for


and this week the lovely Emma has picked the theme


with this photo as inspiration

I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to get my Distress Inks out and have a good old play.
Here's what I came up with:

Background created using Spiced Marmalade, Bundled Sage, Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks
Image panel background created using Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass

Then I stamped the Stampendous Agapanthus Cluster stamp with Bundled Sage and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks.

A few co-ordinating adhesive pearls, some seam binding and a flower to finish it off.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Just Add Ink - Just Add Pearls
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Polka Doodles - Flowers
Crafty Cardmakers - Distress It
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Whoopsi Daisy - Summer Colours

Thanks for your visit today.
Hope you like what you see.
Have a wonderful day.
