Jewel Rainbow Ice Cream Cones

I am linking this card for the Rainbow challenge over at CAS-ology this week and the SSS Monday challenge J is for..jeweled colours, in my case.  ETA I am also linking this to the Fusion Beach House themed challenge going on right now...Thanks Darnell!  Ice cream at the beach house sounds good!  Oh wait...I don't have a beach house.
Let me explain...  
I have a confession.  I have never made a rainbow anything.  I would have to say that not all of the primary colours are at the top of my list.
Forgive me Ardyth!  I do love the variations of the rainbow colours and I decided to just get over it and use jewel-like versions to create and participate in the challenges.  I had the idea to use a small summery image and found this Basic Grey ice cream cone that had never been used.  The whole set is a NBUS and now an element from the set has seen some action!
I started by masking of two sections of my card front with Washi Tape and stamped the sugar cone part with PTI Vintage Linen.  The Washi Tape sectioning produces a nice straight stamping.  I then moved the Washi Tape strips up over the sugar cones and stamped the ice cream parts in SU Vanilla craft ink.  After that was dry, I took out my Sakura sparkle pens and added the (jeweled) ROYGBIV colours onto the rolled sprinkles part.  I also touched up the ice cream scoops with some white craft ink.  My sentiment is from a SU set and the card front is SU Barely Banana.
So, that's it then, a CAS summery birthday card!  Happy Birthday Jen!
