Cupcake anyone?

Howdy! I truly didn't mean to go that long without posting.. again. Things have been busy at work and when I get home I just don't feel like doing much, other than relaxing. I did get two cards completed today. I'll share one for this post and save the other for tomorrow.
The layout for this card was inspired by last week's sketch challenge #229 over at Splitcoast Stampers. The card also follows this week's challenge #32 at the High Hopes Stamps blog which is to use the color combo of pink and brown. BTW- did I mention I won their 29th challenge? How exciting! My first challenge win. Ok - back to this week. I love these two colors together. I figured it was time to break out my Bittersweet pad. It's perfect for this challenge. The stamps, cardstock, and ink are all by Papertrey Ink. For a little extra sparkle I added Stickles under the dew drop and some fine glitter to the cherry. I don't have any brown Primas so I just sponged a little Dark Chocolate ink to the smaller, spotted flower. As usual - the full recipe is below. Thank you for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with a card for Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #7!

Stamps: Everyday Classics (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate, Hibiscus Burst (Papertrey Ink)
Cardstock: Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Bittersweet (Basic Grey)
Accessories: Prima flowers, dew drop, Diamond Stickles, Fine Glitter (Martha Stewart), Quickie glue pen, Nestabalities, sponge dauber
