Link in the chain - July

It's reveal day at Card Chain Challenge. My card went to Janis in Idaho this time.

From the options on offer I chose the themes of summer and snacks (although I do wonder whether three scoops counts as a meal!).

Bright, citrusy colours seemed to go with a summer vibe and I couldn't find a suitable stamp with the word "summer" so I ended up using die cut lettering for that bit. There's Spica glitter pen on various elements for a bit of subtle sparkle. The cone is cut out and popped up with some gel glue.

You just took me back to my youth! We used to get 3 scoops of sherbet on a cone-lemon, orange and raspberry. We got pretty good at not losing any even on the little merry go round in the park-though parents gave us the fish eye! LOL
