Ice Cream Anyone???

OK OK OK I don't have ice cream for you but I do have a neopolitan color scheme that will hopefully cool you off on a warm summers day!!!

This card is doing my typical multiple duty:

House Mouse Challenge - Neopolitan

Friday Sketchers - Fun sketch

Stamp with Fun - Dots

And for my card:


I had a heck of a time with that glass of tea and even now the ice cubes look like they have pink on them when in actuality they have Crystal Stickles on them and are picking up color from something nearby when I was taking the pic. I used BG papers, House Mouse image, Copics, Bazzill & Kaiser flowers, Hero Arts pearls, BG ribbon and a misc charm. I used to put charms on cards and layouts and had quit using them but saw someone (sorry I can't remember who it was) use one on a card recently and was like DOH!!! where are my charms!!!

Hope you like!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
