Neapolitan icecream

As a child the only ice cream I remember is Neapolitan, it came in blocks and I loved it. It was always a special treat and I always ate it the same way, vanilla or white, strawberry or pink and then last was the chocolate. I hated it when the flavours mixed and couldn't understand my friends when they deliberately mixed them all in. I think looking back I have always had a touch of OCD lol

I am trying to use stuff that has been in my stash for a while and this image by Birdie Brown is one I have had for a while and this is the first time it has been coloured up. Once it was coloured I decided I wanted a neapolitan background and this is the first time that this quatrefoil plate has been used, it was easy to assemble a bit like a jigsaw and lots of fun too. I wanted to leave more spaces open but OCD sometimes gets the upper hand lol.

Oh Amanda! I have this card on my desk - it arrived yesterday! It's absolutely FABULOUS - even more so in real life than the photo, and the chocolate sauce etc. glistens so well (100% perfectly applied Glossy Accents I think?). Terrific card and absolutely beautifully made - now why doesn't that surprise me?

Thank you!

Hugs, Di xx

Great card there Amanda. Love the memories it invoked too. Neapolitan was considered "posh" when we were kids and yes, a real treat!
