Friendship Retreat Cards # 9 and #10

The ice cream sundae was adapted from a published Stampin' Up! suggestion. All except the sentiment was accomplished with punches. Even the polka dot background was created by punching the white cardstock with a handheld hole punch and placing it on a larger red matte. This was a bit time consuming making all the individual parts of the sundae and gluing them together, but in the end I think it turned out to be a very cute card and worth the effort.
