Lucky Sundaes

Good Monday Morning:
Wouldn't ya just love to start the day with a thick chocolate sundae!!!! This image comes from Sugar Creek Hollow. You can find it in the "Food" section in the Quick Find Digi's by Type. More new images will be available April 1 - so mark your calendars. You're not going to want to miss them!!

For my card I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers .(Shown in the thumbnail below). I printed the image off twice - once one white paper and again on Vanilla. I touched the glass up with a bit of grey to give it a bit of dimension and then covered it with Crystal Effects to slick it up. (That was the challenge from over at Saturday Spotlight this week) When the Crystal Effects was just a bit dry - I started playing around with it to try to give
it a bit more texture to look like those old fashioned sundae glasses. The cherry has a dew drop on top of it to give it a bit of dimension too....along with the ice cream sticking out from the page with dimensionals.

The Corrosive Challenge this week was to create a card with some Luck on
it. I thought myself "lucky" when I noticed that the Tres Chic stamp has
the word Lucky included. Our Creative Corner's challenge this week was to create a card with yellow, green, brown and pink and I matched that with the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge shown below.
I guess I was lucky twice in creating this card because when I went looking for the finishing touch for the card I found that the L word in Define Yourself stamp set was Lucky!

To create the shamrocks I crumpled up a piece of Old Olive paper, and then distressed it more by rubbing the stamp pad over the rough spots.....then I put it into the Heart to Heart punch. Not an easy feat when the paper is no longer flat and crisp!

So that's it for today. I hope you have a wonderful day and a little bit of luck falls into your path.

Thanks for stopping by
