Inkspirations Color Challenge #68 and CPS 216 Sketch Challenge

Combining color challenges and sketch challenges is my new favorite hobby ;)

Here's the sketch:

Here's the colors:

And my cute as a cupcake card...

I used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder for the base, the Create a Cupcake stamp set and punch, and Certainly Celery ribbon, with an Itty Bitty Button and white thread for the bow. I Smooch Spritzed the Celery circle, and rubbed it in with my finger to give the whole paper a uniform sheen (Shimmer Paint would work better... I should add that to my list!). It's hard to see on the cupcake, thanks to the flash, but under the Iridescent Ice embossing powder, I used Watercolor Crayons to color on coordinating sprinkles. In real life, you can see them, but they're nice and subtle. Other colors used were Regal Rose for the cherry, and Chocolate Chip for the sentiment, stem and ribbon stamp. And Kraft with Versamark and Smooch for the cupcake base.

UPDATE: I just found another challenge using the exact same colors, so I'm entering it there too :) It's the HSS Color Splash Challenge #66 at
