Next I stamped flamingos images from Darling Flamingos stamp set using Couture Color  Peony Collection (Ballet Slippers Dye, Hollywood Star Dye and Cosmopolitan Pink Hybrid) on separate cardstock. After that I fussy cut them and adhered them to the card panel with foam mounting tape as you can see from the images above.

I adhere a strip of Adhesive Foil Paper – Holo Pink directly on the card before I add the ice cream background image. For the sentiment, I stamped the label stamps from our Basic stamp set in our Noir Dye Ink on separate cardstock.  Next I fussy cut the labels and then popped them up the edge of my card.
