Monthly Demo Swap card for July

I have finally made a new card to add to my blog. It is a card I made for a monthly Demo swap on Splitcoaststampers. It's a little late. It was due in July. Yikes.
The picture has some glare, so I will try to take a better picture later and repost it.

This is the first card I made with my Sweet Scoops set from the Summer Mini. The card base is made with Marina Mist. I stamped the sentiment on the Whisper White panel and then used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder in my Big Shot. I used the Scallop Trim Border on the Cherry Cobbler layer. For the ice cream cones, I stamped the cones in Early Espresso, stamped off once. I stamped one each of the ice cream tops in Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie and Regal Rose, cut them out and adhered them with Stampin' Dimensionals.
