Pretty Palette #53

Hello friends!  I'm a little late getting my card and post done this week.  It seems that time has been getting away from me lately.  Maybe because it's the great weather we've been having!  But I couldn't pass up this awesome Pretty Palette color challenge from My Time Made Easy!  Look at these yummy colors!  Reminds me of ice cream and summer, which was my inspiration!
The colors this week were taken from the Wind My Girly Gears digital paper pack from MTME, but I went a different route.  I wanted to use the Cake and Ice Cream cut file and the papers the pack (although fantastic in design!) just didn't work with the cut file for me, so I used the Darling Dots digital paper pack instead.  I actually re-colored one of the papers in GIMP to match the aqua in the color graphic above.  Very easy to do!  Then I cut the ice cream cone using the cut file (resized to 50% of the original size), my Cricut, and red, pink, daffodil, chocolate chip, and creamy caramel cardstock.  I layered the pieces together and added the baker's twine for the stem and some Star Dust Stickles to give the look of "jimmies".   I added the sentiment from On Display 1 stamp set in eggplant ink.  Super simple, but it took some pre-planning.
I followed this week's sketch from Clean and Simple.  It was so perfect for what I wanted to do.
