Ice Cream Cone Card

I made this card for my grandma's birthday.  I have been a sweets kick with cards lately, because it seems like the last few birthday cards I have made were different types of sweets, lol.  I used the Simply Charmed cartridge and the Gypsy to make a shaped card of the cone.  The bottom is embossed with the Argyle Cuttlebug folder to give it the look of a real cone.  The ice cream part was cut with glitter paper and then I added some google eyes to the face.  The inside says "Hope your birthday is really sweet!"  


I am entering this into the following challenge:
