Pop goes the cupcake!

Hello!
I needed to make a birthday card for my MIL. I hardly ever use the color purple and I had a stamp set from about 5 months ago that I never mounted or used. Sooooo, that's how this card was born.


I used orchid opulence as my base. A piece of certainly celery dsp (retired) in the middle.
Stamp sets:
Congrats (retired)
Out of the Box (hostess)
I had never opened Out of the Box. I ran across it this afternoon and knew I had to ink it up. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig for the main image (it's 3 stamps) and the sentiments. I still got 'Congratulations' a little off so I tried to cover it up with a piece of white c/s. I colored the image with my watercolor pencils and blender pen. The cupcakes frosting is dark purple but it looks black in the pic. I think it turned out cute even without embellishments.
Until next time...
Blessings...
