Ice Cream Makes Everything Better!

I don't know about you, but ice cream on a super hot day is the perfect cool down treat. It is also what we were given as children when we were sick to help us "feel better".....personally I'm good with ice cream any time! I really don't need a reason

This cutie named Waddles from Your Next Stamp is perfect for making a card with an ice cream focus! I am entering this card into Sketch and Colour Challenge #41 at Your Next Stamp.

You can't see it in the picture but the hats are coloured with Sparkle pens and the ice cream has a clear sparkle on it as well.

I coloured my stamp with alcohol markers and sparkle pens and fussy cut them. This stamp set has a matching die set but I don't have it so my manicure scissors got a work out! 
3D Pop Dots give the middle penguin some dimension as he pops off the card. The sentiment is stamped directly on to the patterned paper and it is from a different stamp set also from Your Next Stamp (name is below).
