SOG Challenge: Inspiration

Hi all,
Welcome to another fun and exciting challenge from Some Odd Girl!  The last challenge was a bling challenge, and wow, what entries we had!
For this fortnight, we were given a picture to use as inspiration - these are always fun!  Take a look at the pic:

OK, so many ideas, right?  If you were smart enough to get your hands on any of the 3 clear stamps released as part of the birthday celebration, they are PERFECT for this challenge!

Here's mine:

I mainly used the colours this time - I didn't include any cupcakes, but if you want to, you definitely should!  And sprinkles too!
My card base is Bermuda Bay CS.  All of my patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist collection called Out of the Blue, and my mats are black.  The strip across the middle was punched with the EK Success Fleur de Lis edge punch, and I added some Bermuda Bay polka dot ribbon around that. 
I also added Martha Stewart pearls to the visible corners, and I stamped the sentiment (which comes with the image) onto the patterned paper. 

I stamped Cupcake Mae onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memeto Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured her with Copics, and her dress was paper pieced using the same patterned paper.
I cut her out with a thin white border around and mounted her on with foam dots.

You should definitely play along with this one - link your card up over on the Some Odd Girl blog, so we can see it and oooh and aaaah!

Tomorrow morning I will be leaving bright and early for a week in the Big Apple - yes, that's right, New York, here I come!  So, I'll be scheduling next week's posts ahead of time (hopefully, if all goes well).  Wish me luck y'all!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Omg Robin, she is just shaded perfectly. I really like this turquoise and red combo too, so bold.
