CIC71 - Witchy Woman (well not quite)

 Yum!  - Well even though I'm not an "Official" Sweetie until August 15th Hope said we could play along this week if we wanted to and how could I resist when the inspiration looks this yummy.  This week is being sponsored by Ippity through Michelle.  Since I (sadly) don't own any Ippity stamps - (may have to remedy that soon) I chose to use stamps from my own stamp collection.  I recently purchased (Greeting Card Kids from SU) and thought with the wonderful fall colors of the cupcake it would make the cutest Halloween card.  So what do you think?  You may recognize the sketch as I basically used the same sketch as yesterdays BC post (scroll down 1 post).  It's a great sketch to use and I think it worked for this card quite well.
I was inspired by the wonderful colors and all the textural elements of the inspiration photo.  I used a textured embossing folder (Square Lattice-SU) on Apricot Appeal cs and brayed Chocolate Chip ink over it.  The DP is from DCWV and the brown lace is from my personal stash of unidentified ribbons. 
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Prisma Colored Pencils/Gamsol
Other: Nestabilitie Dies.
Thanks to all who sent such a warm welcome and Congratulations on my making the Sweeties Design Team for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenges.  It really meant a lot to me to know you were happy for me.
