Summer Ice Cream - Sugar Nellie

This card was made using five challenges:

Stampavie - summer
Sugar Bowl - sketch and include handmade flowers
Bee Crafty - colored image
Stamptacular - 3 brads, 2 papers and 1 flower
ABC - anything goes

Here is the sketch:

For my image I used Summer Ice Cream from Sugar Nellie Stamps. She is layered two times and a third layer is the hat and ice cream. The puppy is layered twice. I colored the image using my Copic Caio markers.
Here is the finished card. I made my own flowers by just starting with paper and cutting it in a circle. Never tried doing it this way, just let my scissors flow and really like how they turned out. They are not 'perfect' and the petals are all different sizes and not symmetrical. I think it added some flair to the card. Two of the flowers have brads in the center and there is one brad in the upper corner of the mat. I cut the mat using Nestabilities.

And finally .... the inside.
