Sweet Summertime Treat for PPA#102

I made this card for the PPA#102 here, Summertime.
When I think of summer, I think of ice cream, specifically my favorite flavor, mint chip. I was also inspired by the wainscoting in the picture and used my new Stripes textured impressions embossing folder. And I loved this card by Jen Sannes, so I used her ide but changed mine up a bit.
The base is Crumb Cake card stock and I added some Early Espresso DSP from the Patterns DSP Neutrals Stack. I ran some Lucky Limeade thru the Big Shot with the Stripes embossing folder. I stamped the frosting from Create a Cupcake in Lucky Limeade, but stamped it off once for a more mint chip shade. I stamped the dots in Early Espresso and used the Cupcake Builder punch to punch out the frosting and the cherry. The cone is a triangle from Pennant Parade, stamped in Early Espresso. I popped up the entire cone with Stampin' dimensionals. The cone was adhered to a Whisper White circle punched with the 1 3/4 inch Circle punch, also popped up with Stampin' dimensionals. I stamped sweet treats from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Early Espresso. Finally, some 1/8 inch Early Espresso taffeta finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Create a Cupcake, Pennant Parade, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papers: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Patterns DSP Neutrals Stack
Inks: Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Cupcake Builder punch, Stampin' dimensionals, 1 3/4 inch Circle punch, Stripes textured impressions embossing folder, 1/8 inch Early Espresso taffeta
