Amuse Challenge #4 - PUNCHES - A Treat for You

Okay, this is my last one for today, I promise. I bought this stamp the other night at The Creative Quest -- it is by Great Impressions. I just fell in love with it -- it is like "the perfect cupcake." Just so cute! I could not resist!

I watercolored (because I am addicted to watercoloring lately) using my twinkling H2o's and water color pencils. I added stickles (diamond) to the cupcake paper and the candle. I used crystal effects on the actual icing and the flame (glitter free) -- and before I did that -- I colored in some of the sprinkles with white gelly roll pen. I colored it to match this awesome ribbon I picked up at Hobby Lobby. The colors are a combination that I totally would not have chosen otherwise -- brilliant blue, orchid opulence, and a green galore-ish color. The sentiment stamp is by Amuse. Oh, and I learned today while I was reading blogs that the white colored around the poke hole is called a "faux eyelet" -- so I added faux eyelets around the edge of my punched out scalloped ovals. This is a super simple card. I hope you like it!
