CAS(E) this Sketch 227

Today I pulled out the Cool Treat stamp set and Frozen Treats thinlits to play with for this challenge.  I absolutely love this set and to tell the truth, I got a little hungry for ice cream while I was creating it and am getting a little ice cream craving right now as I'm preparing this post.  Good thing I decided to make it a birthday card.  Ice cream will probably be allowed as a birthday treat if my recipient gets an ice cream craving after opening their card.  :)  I know this is retired DSP, but the good news is that you can use the stamp set and recreate the images if you want.  I tried to use the same colors to recreate the ice cream cone I added to the front of the card.  Can you find it's twin on the paper? I know my waffle pattern on the cone is darker than the picture, but I wanted to be sure it stood out.  That is such a fun thinlit.  

I wasn't happy with the stark white background of the inside, so I added a bit of sponging in the same color as the inside ice cream, Powder Pink.  I think it softened the inside of the card.  What do you thinit?
