glittery sugar cone

Today's card, one we made on Monday in class, features the stamp set, Sweet Scoops, from the Stampin Up Summer mini. 

The blue cardstock is the retiring color, Brocade Blue.

The cone looks sugary and yummy because we adhered some dazzling diamonds to it.  The two scoops of ice cream, which must be Blue Moon, are popped up on dimensionals.

The card idea comes from Mary's blog.

My oldest daughter landed her first job at our local Dairy Queen.  She learned that making the perfect ice cream cone is more complicated than she thought.  I debated the pros and cons of sharing a photo with you of her first cone.  It resembles a certain.....ummmm......errrr......body part common to the male species.  It is extremely hilarious but due to the 'nature' of the resemblence, I'll refrain from sharing (although I'm sure I could be persuaded to share if enough asked).

Having worked at McDonald's for a couple of years during high school, I agree that real life ice cream cones are difficult to perfect.  I'll stick to stamping them.
