My Favorite Colors

the card base is a pastel pink, does not show up very well in the photo. Think it was called "tutu pink"
Right now it seems like if I am going to be drawn to a certain color combo, it is this one! I just LOVE pink & lime green together! However after uploading my photos of this card, I am really thinking I need to figure out a better way capture the "real" look of my cards... Would an Ott light help? Let me know! (of course it would probably help if I were taking photos at a better time than midnight)
So anyhooo the I got this cute image from Whimsy Stamps, it is a Meljen's design. I have had an idea in my mind of what colors I wanted to dress it up in first & lucky me, those were the exact colors over at The Crafty Ho's this week: pink & spring green. So I used the Sweet Stop sketch #103 as my main "recipe" & started throwing thing together. I laced ribbon thru eyelettes to accent a couple of the layers & added a row of selfsticky bling to the punched out scalloped circle. I used pencils to color in the cake & then added some white soufle pen to the candles to add a little dimension & glossy accent on parts of the cake to make it look like real fondant accents popping out. The stamps are a set called happy2bcircles from The {Stamps} of Life, I used CTMH ink in Pear
I am also entering to the following challenges:
Catch the Bug, use 4 or more layers
Fab-n-Funky Spotty & Dotty (the dots on the cake plus there is pink polka dot & green polka dot dp)
