Neopolitan is this week's challenge over at LIM. It's the ice cream I know as 'tricolor', yummy and perfect when you can't decide on just one flavor. I used two cupcake stamps, colored them in pink and brown, added a bit of glitter and some pearls. I used pink DI and a Tim holtz stencil on a cream colored paper, much the color of vanilla ice cream. And I stamped a birthday greeting. I've come to love doing color challenges. I used to find them too tricky, they still are challenging,  but the hardest part is to settle on what stamps to use, then it gets easier. I rummage through all my stamps before I settle on one, it's a good reminder to see what I already have in my stash, and it's extra fun whenever I get to use a NBUS one.

This card is for:
Less Is More - Neopolitan
Seize The Birthday - Birthday + Optional Topping of Sweet

This is a lovely interpretation of that colour challenge. Those cupcakes are a great stamp...I like the way you coloured them and the glistening look on the icing.
As soon as we book, I will email you...not sure when as Al needs better health to get the out of country insurance without exclusions.

Such a great card, Pia! I've loved your use of stencils lately, I love the soft look you create with them, so pretty! One of my favorite techniques! Great use of our colors too. I wish we had this nice sentiment stamps in Finnish... Ours are all so boring!! Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!

It's great you have 'felt the fear and done it anyway' on the colour challenges - I am still in fear mode. This looks delicious and I love how you used the pearls.
