Can't Decide? Go for Neapolitan!

Hello! I hope you had a great weekend! Are you all as excited as I am about the new releases at The Greeting Farm and the Rockin Rebel contest? I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!! We also have another challenge for Monday Mania at Club Anya and Friends! Today's challenge comes from Claireabelle and is to be Neapolitan - in other words, use strawberry, chocolate and vanilla colors on your card! I twisted it just a bit with my card and used actual strawberries instead of the "pink" that is associated with the ice cream for my inspiration.

I used the head form the new Cuddle Anya (with her hat slightly altered to be a strawberry) and the body of the Anya in the Spotlight set. I stamped her twice, cutting out the arms from the second one. I drew a little basket to put some "strawberries" in and layered it under the second set of arms.

The Details:
Stamps: Cuddle Anya, Spotlight - both from The Greeting Farm, Sentiment from Hero Arts
Paper: K&Co, Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Antique Linen Distress Ink
Skin: E000,E00,E11,R20
Hair and Skirt: E21,E25,E27,E29
Misc: Corner Rounder (SU), Ribbon (Offray)

Thanks for stopping by today!
