Saturated Canary Challenge - 29 March 2012

Over at the Saturated Canary Challenge this fortnight the topic is "thinking of you".  I wanted to make a card for the Sister I work with who is leaving this week to go on maternity leave.  I therefore needed to go and purchase the image "ice-cream and pickles".  I have coloured the image with promarkers, die-cut with a Nestabilities die, chalked the edges with a shimmer chalk and added Glossy Accents to what is the cream in the ice-cream cone and added some sparkly glitter to it and added some Glossy Accents to the cherry on the top.
The backing papers I bought from Funky Fairy before she closed her store.  One was a swirl backing paper and the other a gingham.  I have added some lace which I threaded through some fine ribbon.  The card has been finished off with some sentiments off the computers, various Marianne Designs swirls, lots and lots of flowers, pearls, pins and some gems.  

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
