Lollipop Ladies Challenge

This is my contribution for the Lollipop Ladies 1st challenge that I blogged about earlier.

  Yay managed to get it done, just before the deadline naturally.

 

I played with the colours of the banana split, bringing in the ice cream colours, vanilla, strawberry and chocolate as designer paper (from Stampin Up)   I decided to make a trifold card to highlight these 3 flavours.  But I also wanted to incorporate the other colours in the pic as well.  I used textured white as the base to represent the whipped cream,  bought in some red with the scallop circle punch and a printed pic of the cherry,  a chocolate coloured circle represents the choc sauce, and a touch of  yellow matting for the banana!  The stamp ” you make me smile” because who doesn’t smile at the thought of dessert? 🙂  it also made me think of the Uncle Cracker song “Smile” that’s doing the rounds at the moment, love that song!!  I liked the silver band idea, because it holds the card, just like the silver dish holds the banana split.  And then a few little square coloured rhinestones for sprinkles. And done!

You would think I thought heaps about it after reading that description, but I really didn’t, it just worked out that way lol! 

This was a fun challenge, looking forward to the next one!
