Neapolitan or Mint Chocolate Chip?

A while back I asked you if you prefer "bold" or "subdued". Today I want to know:

Neapolitan or Mint Chocolate Chip? Please leave me a comment telling me which you prefer!

I created this scrapbook layout for my friend Cheryl R. and her friends at Cheryl's workshop. Planning ahead is not my forte apparently. I wasn't sure if I'd even have enough card stock for everyone (she had 12 guests!) in pink and brown (Neapolitan) so I did my demonstration in Mint Chocolate Chip. I think both turned out pretty yummy!

Juicy Stamping Tip: To create a homogeneous look and feel through the layout, I used the Polka Dot Embossing Folder both on the background card stock and on the die cut shapes (large butterflies and scallop envelope), after I die cut them using the Beautiful Butterflies and Scallop Envelop dies.

Once you start sponging, don't stop! Sponging everything in the same color gives the whole layout a warm look with the same softness from top to bottom and left to right.

Here's what I used to make this layout:
