Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge-Sorbet

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for The Challenge! *** 

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

We hope you'll play along!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!  Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge blog for all the challenge info and deadline. 

Have a Cool Birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Concord & 9thI took my inspiration for my card from the photo's cool treat theme and pretty color scheme.  Instead of making a cup of sorbet my focal image, I used another sweet treat--a popsicle!  My popsicle is from Concord & 9th's Sweet and Cool stamp set.  I used the dies to cut the popsicle shape from a panel of watercolored paper, then cut the popsicle stick from a scrap of kraft cardstock.  The finished popsicle was adhered to a blue watercolor washed panel on an angle to add interest. To give it an icy look, I brushed a light coating of glitter on the die cut piece using a glitter brush pen.  So pretty IRL!

The "have a cool birthday" sentiment was stamped in silver pigment ink next to the popsicle, then heat embossed in silver.  A trio of clear sequins were positioned around the popsicle, kind of like melty drops of liquid.  I matted the panel on berry cardstock, then placed it on an aqua card base with a silver strip positioned across it.
