Neapolitan inspired

Well it's Scorchio again today,so I'm in my usual position in front of the TV watching Wimbledon, but in an attempt to keep cool I bravely ventured out to the garage to the freezer ( something I don't do very often  due to all the huge hairy spiders that live in there!!),where I spied my inspiration for the colours in  today's challenge over at Clean and Simple Stamping.

Neapolitan ice cream brown,pink,and cream.

I started with a vanilla card from my stash,and then used some SU Chocolate Chip card (which I passed through the BS in a Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder) and Apricot Appeal to make the central panel which was edged with a MS punched   border. My BS and dies again came into use to cut the two smaller flowers and six scalloped circles to make the chrysanthemum out of SU Pretty In Pink.The cream flower centers were punched in SU So Saffron,and topped with gems.The Fiskars sentiment was stamped in CChip.

Take a look,and please let me know what you think

Well that's me for today,tomorrow is coffee and crafting at Jacqueline's so I may have done a card, or I may not have had the time!!!!...............please pop back to see if I was successful.

Thanks for all your lovely comments over the last few weeks, I really do appreciate the time you fellow crafters take to voice your opinions on my work.

Enjoy the sun and the tennis if you can.

  2. Beautiful card for a very lucky recipient.

  3. Your card looks delicious Bev! (I really wish you hadn't mentioned the ice cream though... perhaps I should have mine guarded by a bunch of hairy spiders - I could go off it then!) Vx

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! I love the embossing and the flowers :)


Thank you for your comment, I love to read every one, and I really appreciate your time in leaving me your thoughts.
