Neopolitan Challenge


I am calling this my Neopolitan challenge because these colors remind me of the Neopolitan ice cream my dad always got when we were kids…vanilla, chocolate and strawberry.  The strawberry ALWAYS got left behind….ick, I didn’t like those seed-filled berries in my ice cream!  I do like strawberries ON my ice cream, but I still am not crazy about strawberry ice cream.  That must be the ONLY kind, though! :D

Anyway, this card is for two challenges:

AND it is a 100% case of Jaydee’s cards (that I fell in love with), shown here!


I am not so happy with the pink DP I used; it doesn’t really match my pink ribbon as well as I would like, but since it was supposed to be a 10-minute card (I won’t tell you exactly how long it took…..but it was a LITTLE longer than 10 minutes) I didn’t want to fuss with it any more!  You MAY just see something similar to this again soon, as I was playing around with these colors for another card challenge…so stay tuned!

Thanks so much for visiting today---I am blessed by it! ♥

So pretty, love this totally! The colors just great together!
I worked at Swenson's Ice Cream many years ago, the truth is, you cannot imagine how many customer asked to leave out the strawberry ice cream in their banana split! So you are not alone! LOL!
Thanks for joining us here at CCCB, glad to see your creation here once again!

I'm lov'n it.. I can't believe you can do a card in 10 min.. I get that magazing "take ten" and It takes me more than 10 min to decide on paper or a stamp.. I guess I over think it..Your card looks great!

I must admit I not a big fan of strawberry either, I'm a big Rocky Road fan!

Thanks for playing along with us at CCCB!
