Magnum Card For The Summer Vacation

It's my son's last summer vacation.
He's about to finish his final highschool exams (with excellent grades!) and will soon be drafted to the army.
I made him a Magnum ice cream pop card to wish him a cool vacation (well, it's very hot in Israel.)
I sent my kids to buy and eat Magnums so I can use the sticks, all in the name of art. They didn't complain at all...
White, brown and kraft CS, brown Stazon ink (2 colors), VersaMark ink, TH Vintage Photo distress ink, clear EP, Cuttlebug bubbles embossing folder, Spellbinder Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Circles, a Magnum stick and a ribbon.
The stamp inside is Michael Strong's Cloisonné Circle, stamped and heat embossed with black EP. I left enough space inside for hand written wishes.
The flourishes on the back side and on the coordinating envelope are TH die cuts, distressed with ink and accented with a brown pen.
I glued the stick and the top part of the card 3D so it seems like a real ice cream pop. Looking from the side you can see the chocolate glazing.
Yummy... somebody already took a bite!
