MIM#123 DT Card - Enjoying an icecream

Good morning, we are already halfway through the first month of the year. It's still school holidays here and I have the 3 grandchildren with me today as both Mum and Dad have gone back to work after having several weeks holidays.
It's also the start of the fabulous Linky Party at Make It Monday, we had loads of wonderful entries to feast our eyes on last week and we are hoping for another bumper crop this week. The DT enjoy seeing all of your fab creations.
Congratulations to  May Park as our featured artist from last week's entries and also to  Mrs. A who is the winning commenter.
This week I chose this lovely image from Milk Coffee called Madeline and Neapolitan Icecream and had lots of fun colouring her up. I even attempted getting the right colours for the icecream!!!
Here she is........

 Inside of card (sorry scanned slightly crooked and couldn't get it correct so the sides are chopped a bit narrower than they actually are)

SU Island Indigo cardstock for the cardbase - top fold
Pale Blue card from stash
DP from Kaisercraft 12x12 paper stack - Antique Rose
Nestie Die - Labels Twenty-two - I also used the reverse piece on the front of the card.
Image is from our sponsor   Milk Coffee and is called Madeline and Neapolitan Icecream 
Sentiment is from SU - Petite Pairs
Flowers are handmade with strips of the DP ( I forgot the pearls in the scan so I've now added them!)
Other Dies used were - Cheery Lyn Designs - Olive Branch, EK Border Punch
Copic Markers
Foam Dots, Pearls from stash
Crochet thread for the stitchings
SU Pacific Point inkpad

POTW time - It's so hard to pick just one so this week I chose two entries!!!!
The first is this beauty from JoAnn at J.ATTENBURY CREATIONS and you can find it here
I'm sure most of us have felt this way at times. It's a great image and just love the design of the card.

The second one is this lovely card by Sandy at Lonely Cards and can be found here - Love the bright red behind the simple black and white image and the fab white bow too.
