Cosmopolitan Neopolitan

Now say that 3X real fast!  That's the Tuesday Trigger on Moxie Fab World this week.  These yummy treats are the inspiration:

Aren't these just to die for? 

My cards aren't very cosmopolitan because I was in a vintage mood today;  but they are neopolitan.  I love those colors!

This first card came about because I had the stamps out from the SCS CAS122 challenge - Play on Words.
This one isn't intended to be CAS but it's definitely cleaner than the next one.


This one is for my girly ballerina.  I hope she likes it.  She's 8 and this is the first "grown-up" style card I've made her.

Little bits of love all clustered together.

Paper - Papertrey Ink, Girls Paperie Vintage Whimsey, Neenah

omgosh, how could she not love it? I hope you can tuck it in a frame for her, because it would look lovely hanging on the wall :)
I love the clusters you've created on both cards - they really draw my eye :)
