Paper smooches SPARKS challenge

The challenge over at Paper Smooches was to find inspiration from this photo

and although it was somewhat out of my comfort zone I really wanted to play along. I was able to download some of their free digi images and use them to make a hybrid card.
First of all I cropped two digi sentiments to make this 'Thanks berry much' one. (I used 'thanks', and 'I love you berry much').
Then I digitally coloured one of the small berries and created a background paper by replicating it and adding some green polka dots. I printed off some outline berries for the main image and coloured them with my promarkers. This was all layered onto my kraft cardstock which I had sent through my cuttlebug with a grid embossing folder to replicate the waffle cone. 
You can see the waffle effect a little clearer on this image.
I hope you like my take on this challenge, it really was quite alot of fun to step outside of my comfort zone for once!
