The Colour of Summer - Ice Cream Inspirations

I love ice cream. And I have just seen this series of posts called The Colour of Summer - Ice  Cream Inspirations on Kristin's blog and Carolyn's blog. I missed out on making a creation inspired by Mint Choc Chip - although I may still do it as mint green and chocolate is such a yummy combo. This week's inspiration flavour is Baseball Nut. I'm a UK girl and I had to do a bit of research to find out what this was (love Google). The explanation I found was here and it looks very tasty
More importantly, it's a very simple colour combo.
The ripple of raspberry immeeiately reminded  me of the little-used handmade paper I had in my stash and from there it was a short hop to a leaving card for a colleague.

I tore the handmade papers to accentuate the texture and then added some of the pretty acrylic accents which were free with 'Papercraft Inspirations' this month.

Summer of Colour is a great event, I love seeing all the different crafts and ways people interpret the colour. Great card.

Hi Kirsty!

This is so beautiful! Thank you for sharing it with us - and I'm so happy you're playing along!

I hope you don't mind if I put this into week 3's link up? That way, others can easily find you and your baseball nut work. Then please feel free to link again to week 4 for the Strawberry Lemonade flavor! I can't wait to see it.

Thank you, Kristin xo
