Paint Chip Swirl

Where is the summer going? Can't believe it is July. Thought a cool ice cream cone would be just the ticket on a hot summer night! Used paint chips from Lowe's for the solid colors in this card. Wonder what they thought when I kept picking and picking and picking paint chips to take home. Probably thought - wow - she either can't make up her mind or has LOTS of rooms to paint!
