Ice Cream Parlour Mobile

I've had this project in my head ever since I got the Petal Cone die in the Occasions Mini, and today I got to complete it. Ta Da!

Once I started working on it everything came together. I used the Ice Cream Parlour DSP from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue (you still have time - March 31, 2011!). The Designer Paper was great plus there are two 12x12 sheets of self adhesive coordinating die cuts to use to decorate the carousel top and the solid butterflies.

I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit for the butterflies on the top, along with the Ice Cream Parlour ribbon and the Daffodil Delight Pom Pom Trim:

The larger butterflies are from the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die, and the cord is a sneak peek from the upcoming Summer Mini (shhh! don't tell!):

I attached everything with glue dots - after trying ribbons and thread and brads and bows... At the top of each cord on the inside of the carousel top I added a large rhinestone so that it would twinkle like stars.

If you like it please leave me a note!!
