Mint Chocolate Chip



Mmmmmmm...it's my favorite ice cream flavor. {smile} I decided to play with my Sweet Chocolate set from My Cute Stamps and I had this Lush Brown DP on my counter so I thought why not....let's make a mint chocolate chip card today.

I highlighted the swirls in the ice cream with eucalyptus Stickles and added dots of Espresso Chocolate Pearls to make the *chocolate chips* in my ice cream. Mmmmm...see, now there I go making myself hungry...again, lol! The oval and scallop oval are both up on separate layers of foam tape.

Here's a close-up of the sparkle and the *chocolate chips*...



I wish you all a VERY Happy Easter Sunday!
