2S4Y: Ultimate Card Showdown!

Ok, here it is. I am so glad I got to participate this week. If you haven't heard about the Ultimate Card Showdown, you can check it all out HERE
Here's my submission:

You know I had a lot of fun making this card, but without fail when I get done with a challenge I always wish I would have done something different. Do you run into that too? It's such a nuisance. I wish I could just be happy with it as is. Anyway. I have been wanting to use this ice cream image from Pink Paislee for awhile and I think it worked well with this. 
Here is a close up of the tag. I covered the back with tape and looped the embroidery floss around the edge. It adds a fun detail! Ok, so how have things been for you this week? Today I feel I can breathe a bit, so it's been nice. Hope your day is going well too!
loves~

I do that a lot - I used to try to re-do those things, but I've learned to let them go. Great card!!
