Stay Cool!

I had so much fun creating this card today - using my brandy new Let's Chill - popsicle dies from Reverse Confetti (thanks to my enabler Amy Tsuruta!).  I added a little twist to them though -  I made them melting a little using my Martha Stewart drippy punch.  I just cut a little strip the same color as each popsicle and adhered the piece behind the bottom, cutting it to fit.  The sentiment is from MFT.
Cute right??!!
I'm linking my cool pops card to several challenges:
(the inspiration for my drips!)

Less is More - Sketch

Love the melting effect and the bright colours against your polka dot background. I do feel that the bold elements do detract from the diagonal sketch a little but a fab card nonetheless.
Thanks for sharing with us.
