A Sundae on a Thursday!

Good morning, Bloggers, from a cold, but beautifully sunny, Wales!  Firstly, I would like to share my good fortune...yesterday I found out that I am the winner over at I Love Promarkers and I also came top 5 with my Saturated Canary card ( at Passion for Promarkers!  So chuffed!!  It gives you such a buzz when Mr picks your name, or when the wonderful DT members think that your card is worthy of a mention, that to have 2 in one week is pretty amazing!
So, onto today's card...
...I was thinking ahead to Summer when I made this one!  The papers are from 12 Cards of Christmas and A Year in Cards CDs and I followed another of the My Favourite Things sketches...
...The image is my ice cream sundae and I've coloured with Promarkers, then highlighted with a touch of Glamourdust and Glossy Accents on the strawberries.  Want to know the colours?  Well, here they are for all you Pro-markers :
Strawberries - Antique Pink, Amaranth Red FM, Crimson, Burgundy, Pear & Olive Green
Raspberries - Watermelon FM, Antique Pink, Vermillion FM
Gooseberries - Aniseed FM, Pear & Olive Green
Blackcurrants - Amethyst, Purple, Imperial Purple FM, Royal Blue
Ice creams - Ivory, Vanilla, Mustrad, Satin, Tan, Cinnamon
Cream - Light Fawn FM
Spoon - Cool Grey 1 & 3, Glass - Tea Green
The sentiment is printed in Holiday Springs Serif font and cut with my petite and petite scallop ovals.  I finished with a Die-namics scalloped corner, pearls (of course!) and red heart gem. I love the sweet sorbet colours of the papers with the bright 'pops' of the fruit - Summer on a card!
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges :
Lace and/or Pearls
(it's very rare for my card not to have pearls on!)
Anything Goes (easy peasy!)

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have the sunshine wherever you are! Lisa x
