IO Challenge - New Year's Resolution

This challenge was to create a card based on a New Year's Resolution. NO... my resolution is not to eat more ice cream. I'm already doing too well in that department! My resolution is to send out more sweet notes and cards to my friends. Most often my cards end up at the stamp store for samples or being sent to the stamp companies. I seem to always fall very short on actually mailing cards out to send a smile to a friend. 
I colored the image using Copics and you can see in the close up that I added Glossy Accents over the bowl and the cherry. I used Spellbinder's Labels 15 to frame the Sundae in red card stock. I also used it in the background cutting a larger label out of brown card stock and then cutting it in to quarters, after embossing it with a CB folder. A few little buttons with jute string and a Martha border bunch to embellish the sentiment along the bottom.
