Neat Stamp Set

I waited and waited to get this SU "You're Neat" set. I think the images are so sweet. I think I learn from each project and what I learned on this one was that patterned paper is not necessarily compatible just because it came from the same line and company. I love this new paper from BasicGrey (Two Scoops), but just wasn't happy with the overall outcome. The layout is from the SU catty. I used Sage Shadow ink and paper which I NEVER use!
Today was "one of those days" at work so I'm taking the night off to stamp. So there! Maybe I'll have something to upload tomorrow. How bout those new releases at Papertrey! ?

Papertrey Cake

I'm participating in a swap on splitcoast and am hoping it's ok. It's a great set. I love the flower in the background. I used "liquid pearls" in the center of each flower to add texture and interest. The colors are SUs Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, and Pink Passion. I can't wait to see the other cards!
