A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Sweet Treats

It's challenge time again at A Gem of a Challenge, this time our theme is "Sweet Treats".  I've used Ice Cream Ellie, from the Pink Gem store, colouring her with my Spectrum Noir pencils in a change to my usual Promarkers.  The more I use these pencils, the more I like them, I love the soft look they give, but they'll never replace my Pros!  I cut the image out with one of my favourite Spellbinders dies, Floral Ovals, it's just so pretty, and such a handy size for so many images.
 The papers are First Edition, Desert Blooms, a lovely double sided, glittered stack, the flowers were stamped onto some subtle patterned paper from the same pack, then die cut with a Heartfelt Creations matching stamp and die set, I used white micro beads for the centres.  I further embellished with a star flourish, cut with a Joanna Sheen die and glittered with Star Dust Stickles, layered ribbon and matching layered double bow, a sentiment stamped with a Lili of the Valley stamp, some peach pearls and a scattering of white pearls.
