Cosmopolitan Neopolitan...sorta :)

I like the photo that Cath has chosen for this week's Tuesday Trigger. The colours are appealing, the treat looks yummy...except for one thing. I can't stand neopolitan ice cream. At all. I like all 3 individual flavours, but something about the three of them together, well, yuck. Mind you, now I shouldn't have it at all (although there is some very good sugar-free ice cream out there...it's just easier to not eat it, at least for me).
Anyhow, here's the awesome photo:



Supplies: Papers all from Echo Park "Summer Days;"
purple rhinestone strip from $store;
sentiment from SRM Stickers, adhered to white cardstock & popped up on foam tape;
ice cream button from Dress it Up!
 So, I suppose it's obvious that I went in a little different direction than colour? What stuck in my mind most for this Trigger was the idea of ice cream, and this new paper pad from Echo Park was calling my name. This is the first time I've purchased Echo Park (I got On the Record too) and it's really, really nice quality. The super-bright crisp colours just make me happy :)

Jessi

Your description of liking the 3 individual flavors of Neopolitan, but not Neopolitan is funny - since I have the same thing with vegetable soup. I like all the vegies it's made from, but it's a big "ick" to mix them together, imho! Love your card colors and theme with the cute little button :)

Great card, Jessi! Sorry about making you wish for chocolate sauce! Have a fun day.

Hi Jessi, nice to meet you to. Thanks for visiting my blog. Thanks for offering a different view of the Trigger. I never thought of ice cream (maybe because I'm lactose intolerant!!). Love the colors of your card - it's very festive.

So gorgeous, Jessi! I love those fun papers and, yes, once you go over to the dark side with Echo Park, you never go back. ;)
