Cupcake Queen

Good Morning to you.  I hope this day finds you well.  We have had a bit of rain here early this week.  And what a welcomed sight.  We didn't get as much snow this past winter as we should have, so the moisture was very much needed.  It also gave us all a chance to open our windows and let-in some fresh, cool, mountain air into our homes.  We reached 72 as our high.  It was pretty wonderful!
Sorry for the rambling.  The lovely ladies over @ Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge have an interesting sketch for you to try this week.  I must admit, I was a bit stumped by it.  Here is the sketch:

Here is what I created:

For those who follow me, this is not my typical card.  This CAS card was created out of loss of creativity.  The three smaller circles had me stumped.  I stared and stared at the sketch.  I thought about doing a floral image in the main circle and adding butterflies in place of the smaller circle trio.  Maybe I should have done that.

Hind sight is 20-20, right?  Anyways, I like my card.  I used textured Pink pirouette as my main background paper.  I added a small strip of First Edition DSP to the bottom of the card.  I thought the 'weight' of the text would ground the card.  I wanted a pop of color, so I added a strip of scallop trim pool party card stock at the seam.  I covered the seam with some Soft suede taffeta ribbon.  
The main circle is water color paper.  I stamped the image from the Easy Events stamp set, with Black Staz-On ink.  And used re-inkers and my aqua pen to 'color' the image.
I swiped my glue pen across the frosting and sprinkled on some dazzling diamond glitter.  To top it off, I added a half faux pearl!
Thank you for stopping by.  I hope that you have a chance to play along with us @ Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge.  See ya soon!
