Buttons- Ditzy-Craftymessers Challenge 10th March

The  theme for the new  Ditzy-Craftymessers Challenge starting today is Buttons. Your challenge project can be anything, just as long as YOU made it and, of course, it has Buttons on it.

Here is my DT card for the challenge. 

A standard Kraft card base with some patterned paper frm the 6 x6 pack of Freebies in Quick Cards issue 96. I cut a band  of coordinating paper from the same stack and attached it to the patterned paper, almost at the middle of the card. The Ice-cream was made with a cone shape cut from Kraft card and scored using my Crafters Companion  scoring board in a lattice pattern and rubbed over with Vintage Photo distress ink. The scalloped edge was made with a Fiskars edging punch.

The ice-cream flavours were punched from pale green, yellow and lilac cardstock and arranged to form the ice-cream. some buttons in matching colours were adhered using glue dots and the 'cherry' on the top too! The chocolate flake is a piece of light brown ripple card. The senitment was stamped  in red onto a banner shape and adhered with dimensional adhesive.  A few squiggles of Diamond Stickles along the top of the 'ice-cream' create that melted look.
