Simon Says: Happy Birthday!
They are 7 years old and are celebrating with a birthday card
challenge at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge blog.

I've been eager to ink up the Ice Cream Dream stamp set lately
so when I saw this challenge earlier today, I knew exactly what
I was going to do.
The dsp is from the pile of scraps on my desk that I'm trying to
use up. I don't know that I've ever stamped and embossed on
dsp before but I like the result. I used the Black Sparkle embossing
powder by Ranger for the first time - LOVE that stuff! 
I was originally going to use a white card base but then I thought 
why not go for it and add another pop of color.

The picture doesn't show it very well but I used a Spectrum Noir
Sparkle pen on parts of the ice cream. I finished off the card 
with some baker's twine and some sequins.

Happy Birthday Simon!

Happy Stampin'
