Neopolitan joy

Brynn was right! I am posting yet another card done with the Doodle this set. I just LOVE this set! I can't remember the last stamp set I have had this much fun with. I hope you all are not sick of it yet! Here is the card I made yesterday. Some of you may be receiving it in the mail...sorry to ruin the surprise, but it is even better in person! I love combining pink and brown together. It reminds me of Neopolitan ice cream. yummy! I used Chocolate chip and pretty in pink cardstock for the card. The flowers and swirls are stamped with the basic brown ink pad. I stamped the focal flowers with the same ink on vanilla paper (fitting, don't you think?) then I cut them out and watercolored them. I used the blender pens with the regal rose and pretty in pink stamp pads. The top flower is popped up with a dimensional and there is daz diamonds glitter in the middle of both flowers. I made the scalloped border with the slot punch. I used the white gel pen to add some faux stitch lines. One of the things I love best about this card is the way the background on the outside is carried into the inside. I think we, especially ME, forget about the inside of our cards sometimes. We work so hard on the outside and then just leave the inside blank. Not on this one! I stamped more flowers and swirls inside too. If this set doesn't make the big catalog...I will cry!!

I love this card! Thanks for sending one to me - it was great to have a pattern to use for a "unique" sort of fold since I am horrible at following directions - I just loved it! In fact I used yours as a template for my class last week :-)
