Ice Cream Flourishes...

My card today isn't for any particular reason - I just wanted to have a go at doing something I don't normally do in an attempt to meet the requirements of two different challenges:

Less Is More - a one layer card with 'flourishes'
Allsorts Challenge - use ice cream colours


My first dilemma was the one layer business - it would have to be a digi because I just don't do stamping.
Then I had an internal debate about what a flourish was - I decided it could be a curly line - like a calligraphy doodle. I then used one of Anji's freebies which I manipulated in Publisher, coloured with pastel pro markers and added a greeting and a few random diamantes. Strangely enough, Anji's current freebie is a baseball cap with a flourish pattern!

Thanks for reading...
