This morning, I was determined to do something with this unfinished card. It started out as a different color combination, and once I colored my image, I knew it needed a change. I decided to play off of the pink ice cream, so pink it was. Then that meant I had the perfect ribbon to go with it.
And I was a happy camper!

Here is a tip for cutting out images:
After you cut out your image, run a black marker along the edges to eliminate any slivers of white from showing through. See pics below.
Also, if there is a thin area on your image, put a piece or two of scotch tape on the back to lend a little support and keep the cardstock from tearing at the narrow point.
I have been using a lot more color and layers lately, even though the cards are still pretty simple. Maybe that is what is helping me out of my slump!
Whatever works, right?
