Moxie Cosmopolitan Neapolitan

This week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger brings back so many memories.  My Dad comes from a long line of ice cream lovers and as a kid, Neapolitan was always in the freezer.  I was probably 6 or 7 before I realized that the supermarket actually sold single flavor cartons of ice cream!  Today, my Dad (now Papa Joe) has recruited new members to the ice cream-lovers club (my 2 sons), but Neapolitan is still a go-to flavor.  
It was easy to pull the yummy colors from the inspiration pic.  I went with the classic colors of soft white, chocolate brown, and a blush pink.  I brought in the light wood of the stick in the stamped leaves which are done with a wheat chalk ink.   
And for fun, I added a cherry button on top.  I wanted to keep the visual clutter to a minimum, so I decided not to add a tag and stamped my sentiment directly onto a leaf (curved around the shape).  The soft wheat color is difficult to photograph, but the close up photo is closer to what it looks like in person.

I popped up the leaves and added the 3 rhinestones for a little bit of interest.  All done.  And for picture time, Maybelline the bird came out to get her picture taken (wave hi May!).  Thanks for looking!
