BC221-Sketch challenge (Let Them Eat Cake)

Welcome! - It's Blogger Challenge Day and this week we are getting "Sketchy" with this wonderful sketch from our list mom, Lisa:
I must admit at first I thought, What am I going to do with that sketch? Then an idea popped into my head to "flip" the sketch and voila' my card idea was born.

I picked an image that I wanted to use and also got inspired by the current Cupcake Inspirations challenge.
Aren't those cupcakes colorful! - Who doesn't love the rainbow. With that in mind I dug through my scrap paper until I found the piece I was looking for and here is my card:

Card Details: Stamps - Cake from A.Muse|Studio
Papers: Orange, Sugar, Ocean - A.Muse|Studio
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
Cuttlebug Birthday Embossing Folder
Brads - Pink Hedgehog Crafts
White Liquid Applique sprinkled with Clear Glitter

Now it's your turn to join in on the fun. Link your card below:


Also entered into the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday embossing challenge.
