Orange Popsicle Card

I made this card just for fun because I wanted to try out the metal doily die from My Craft Spot.  I am not a person who uses metal dies much at all.  I love the versatility of  electronic die cutters, but there is NO way that my cricut could cut anything as dainty as this doily!  Isn't it gorgeous? I just love how the entire card turned out :)  It makes me want to go check my freezer for some ice cream LOL!
The popsicle is a die cut from Ethan's Cool Treats SVG Collection at SVG Attic.  I added some chalk on it for dimension and glossy accents to mimic drips coming down from the top.
I went with a tangerine color palate inspired by this picture at Moxie Fab World.
Also, if you missed out on the 60% off sale that SVG Attic had yesterday, you are in luck!!  They extended the sale one more day!  So head on over there if you haven't already and stock up on their SVG files.  I would love to see what you create with them!
