Petal Cone Punch Bunch Birthday!

Hi all - Happy Sunday!  Hope you guys are enjoying your weekend so far.  Any plans for Oscar night?  I'm hoping to catch some of it, but personally, I think the best part is the red carpet before the event!  Anyone else with me on that?  As for best movie, I'm rooting for The King's Speech.  I just saw that movie and I really enjoyed it!

Anyway, for today, I've got a fun share for you - I made a Petal Cone favor and I'm so happy with how it came out!  I used the Punch Bunch owl, and gave him googly eyes, which I think makes him look so wide eyed and fun :)  Here's a look at the full favor:
I used the Ice Cream Parlor DSP and I really do like all the bright and happy colors.  Here's a look at the top of the Petal Cone.  The half scallop circle edging gives the top of the cone such a nice finish.  To secure this cute little favor, I punched 2 holes at the top and threaded the Pear Pizzaz seam binding ribbon.
And here's a look at the whole favor - so cute when it's hanging!
I punched out the birthday sentiment from the Punch Bunch set with the scallop square, and added a little paper ribbon trim that was die cut from the Petal Cone.  What do you think?  Would love to hear your feedback.  Now, how cute is that Punch Bunch Stamp Set?  It's one of the Sale-a-bration sets you can earn for FREE when you place an order of $50 or more.  In fact, you can earn a free Sale-a-bration product with every $50 purchase.  You can check out more at my online store.  Don't miss out on Sale-a-bration!! How about the recipe for this petal cone favor?:

Rose, this little guy is sooo cute. You really know how to use color combos. What scallop punch did you use for his eyes (behind the googly eyes)?
