House Mouse Challenge 42 - Neopolitan

Thank you to everyone who joined in last week.
Our challenge this week is over at House Mouse & Friends this week is:~ Neopolitan.
Please use strawberry, chocolate and vanilla as your inspiration.
Check out what the other lovely DT have come up with to help inspire you. Don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!

**************************

I don't know what it is about this card, but I'm happy with it - I like it. It does look better IRL - the lace for one thing looks more lush and creamy - but don't they all look better IRL.

I couldn't make my mind up whether to emboss or deboss the pink, in the end I decided to deboss and inked the edges with distress inks as I also did with the 'vanilla' square. The image (Cosy Shoe) is coloured with Copics and cut and mounted on round nesties. Not much more to say about this one really - it's pretty self exlanatory.


Materials
BC - bazzill : Cream & pink from bit box : Image - Cosy Shoe : Medium - Copics & Ranger distress re-inkers : Nesties label tag : Rest from stash
