Celebrate with a cupcake

I colored this cute stamp from Penny Black's Cakes and Wishes set with my copics and then put in some shadows with colored pencils. I used gel pens to color in the sprinkles on the cupcake and then decided that I wanted a little more dimension so I added some Nuvo drops too. Its funny, I didn't realize I liked coloring until I started making cards. Now, I find random reasons to pick up markers, pencils and pens. :)

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Sunburst set. I stamped it in Versafine black ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. Once I was done, I didn't like how much white space there was but I didn't know what else to add. I decided to cut the panel down a bit and use purple card stock behind it. I stamped the edges of the purple with a border from Paper Smooches with Versamark ink to get a tone on tone effect.

I am sharing this card in CASology #243 - Icing, Addicted to Stamps #236 - Anything Goes and Send a Smile 4 Kids challenges.
