You make life sweet

Hey everyone! Here is a fun quick card I made for Liberty for her Birthday (July 19th she turned 3) Every single time I am making a card that has anything yummy that you can eat on it, she pretends to lick it or eat it.. So really I thought it would be perfect.
I have to tell you I saw this card made by Julie Day (view her amazing card here) so I totally had to card-lift it and give it a go... and I fell in love.. so I wanted to have a try..
I have added a couple of my own touches, distessing, the dry embossing in the back. I think it looks like a waffel cone.. YUMMY!! :)
Oh and I added these little see through almost crystal thingies.. I don't know what they are or where I got them.. But in real life it gives it a great texture. Ya, and the ribbon is really a dark pink almost red :)

I used the paper smooches sentiment from the Sugar Rush collection.. :) Thanks so much for looking! HUGS
