Happy Valentine's Day with TESC98

Hey there, finally I was able to get back to making a card based off of one of Taylored Expression Sketch Challenges. This week is #98 and it was really fun to work with. I decided to combine this with the latest Bitten By The Bug contest (which is a Valentine's project using purple in it) so you will see another post of this with a matching bag or box for some Valentine's gifts.

Here is the TESC98 sketch:


And here's my take:




This really cute ice cream image and sentiments are from Taylored Expressions Sprinkled with Love stamp set. It has a bunch of really cute yummy desserts and other sentiments. I'm really looking forward to using the mug and swirly steam on another card.
I used Glossy Accents on the ice cream dish to make it look somewhat real glass, which is REALLY hard to see in the picture:




I always loved this die cut from Cricut's Stamped cartridge:


So anyway, wish me luck on being picked to being in TESC's Top Crop.
