Make a Wish Cupcake

I wanted to play along with the girls at SCS so I checked in on their latest sketch challenge #CS261.
I decided to do a card using the cupcake stamp that I illustrated for Clear Dollar Stamps. It was the perfect image for this challenge! And the perfect size for an A2 card (4.25 by 5.5 inches)
My cupcake is so easy to color and it made a quick little card that I plan on making more of to keep on hand for birthday emergencies. Of course I will do some in different frostings for the guys!  ;)
Bet you could use this stamp for birthday emergencies to...wink wink!  ;)
The sentiment is from CDS "Birthday Celebration" set.

The cardstock is Bazzill - Irish Eyes, and the designer paper is from Imaginisce's "All Kinds of Happy" line.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Cupcake Craft - Celebration
My Time To Craft - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
If The Shoe Fits - "Color Your World" - Use your fave coloring medium

Here is the sketch for the SCS challenge...I turned it on it's side...a little artistic libery! LOL!
