I've used Stampendous Ice Cream Lick and thought, as I love the Mint colour along with Chocolate I thought I should give my little Hopper with a Choc Mint Chip ice cream -  I think he's licked most of the chips off!!!  
I colopured the image with Copics and cut them with an off-center oval.  The background papers are both used with a  Diagonal Stripe - played with many different ways of creating effects. The darker one wash added with the Embossing Paste, and inked with AudreyBlue when dry. The paler one were run through a Cuttlebug with an embossing pad once one side had been sprayed with ink - this is quite effective but hadn't been shown very well on the photo.
I realised when I uploaded the card I had added two bows on it - too late - I think I've totally lost the plot - not that I've ever lost much of one - dizzy or not!!!

This card is lovely, Heather. The colors are fabulous and I love that mouse image. The one in the cone makes me smile. It looks like he had a bit too much ice cream, ha! :)
