House of Cards July Challenge

It's time for a new challenge at House of Cards:
Use a food image and/or Colors
fresh cut color
I just had to combine both, the colors were fabulous and I had this sweet little
bear with a luscious looking ice cream cone from Darcie's Heart and Home that
had not seen ink yet!  I colored with   Copics, used some Copic blender fluid on a washcloth to texture the bear,  then put some Glossy Accents on the Cherry and
sprinkles.  Next I made a starburst background with imaginisce Hello Cupcake
papers. Then a few embellishments from my stash. 
Below is a close-up so you can see the details.

We have several new design team members so you will want to check out their creations!
