You're my little Cuppy-Cake!


I am so excited that I got the go ahead to share a sneak peek of one of the new images releasing from High Hopes stamps Saturday night!  (I don't know the names of the stamps.  I will update the post after the release with links to the stamps.)  I absolutely love this little ant with his huge cupcake and I had to use him first!  I also got a chance to play in the SCS sketch challenge for the first time in a long time.    I miss getting to do some of the challenges.  I'm going to have to try to participate more often.  I colored my image with copic markers that coordinate with the Basic Grey Cupcake patterned paper that I used.  I added some sponged ink to all of the edges and tied a button on the image to finish off my card.

Have a goodie!

I'm leaving a second comment. I left the first one late at night and I was too tired to write more than a short sentence! lol
I love the colors, wow, they really draw me in! Gorgeous sponged edges, love the shadows, and the paper that look like muffin icing is too perfect! Just beautiful Niki!
