Neapolitan





What a great idea for a challenge theme! In the language of ice cream, Neapolitan usually refers to a trio of ice cream flavors which is often a combination of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. I did a little research and the story is much more broad. For a little history on Neapolitan Ice Cream's sweet origins, click HERE.

I really had fun with this one! The color in my photograph is off a little. The color on the embossed hydrangea is true, but the butterfly is actually rose-colored, and the sentiment is stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and much more brown than it appears in the photo.

I'm also playing at:
