Sweet 17 Card

This week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is "I Scream for Ice Cream".  My daughter is a HUGE fan of ice cream and I decided to take advantage of this week's theme to create a card for her birthday next month.

I used lots of Pop Dots on this card:

Recipe:
George and Basic Shapes - card base and little circle and shadow
Mini Monograms - scalloped circle mat and shadow
Indie Art - ice cream cone
Wall Decor and More - "sweet"
Kate's ABCs - 17
Cuttlebug - Happy birthday folder and 2x2 flower folder (on little circle)
Glossy Accents
Gems
PopDots


Sorry this is such a short and sweet post.  I am drowning in assignments!  However, I would like to give a huge thanks to Rhonda of Scrap Happens with Rhonda and Kristan of Baby Cakes for the wonderful awards they passed along my way.  I certainly don't feel I deserve any awards with my lack of posting on blogs these days...  I really do miss you all!
