Cool Yummy Treat - Challenge #18 at Fantabulous Cricut

This card looks so cute in real life and I have to be honest - it's not photographing well.  The glass part of the milkshake is cut from acetate.  I think that's part of my problem because it's a bit shiny.  On my Gypsy I welded a large oval from the cartridge From My Kitchen to the shadow milkshake from the same cart.  I also cut a smaller oval.  I cut the milkshake shadow twice in addition to the actual card cut.  I cut the milkshake twice as well, once out of acetate and once out of white cardstock.  I cut the cherry out of red.  I took the acetate piece and cut off the top so I could use just the glass part.  First, I ran it through the cuttlebug with the dots folder from Sizzix.  I grabbed my handy dandy dremel tool and roughed up the outside edges of the acetate ever so slightly.  I then grabbed some acrylic green and white paint and mixed them to get that perfect old coke bottle green color.  I brushed a light coat of paint on the back side of the acetate heavy around the edges and very lightly in the middle.  I then took a napkin and dabbed the center.  I wanted the white to show through a bit.  This made it look like an acutal glass for a sundae or milkshake.  Finally I layered my milkshake top with my Vintage Shabby paper from Tim Holtz.  I stickled the cherry stem and leaf with green stickles and used my glossy accents to cover the entire cherry.  I drew two red lines on my white straw (which I think was supposed to be a spoon) and then glossy accented that as well!  I added some little jewels to make sprinkles and a few more to the outside.  Finally, I found a little sticker from Creative Imaginations that said YUM!  Which sums up this cool YUMmy treat card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge!!! 
Enjoy!
