Special Delivery

This "Special Delivery" image is from Digi Doodle Shop, and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.

I love it for it's simplicity so I decided it needed a simple but effective background. I chose my fave color PINK and dressed it up with grey and black. I added glossy accents to the cupcake and colored the candle flame with my spica glitter pen. I couldn't find any chipboard numbers in my stash collection so I took some Tim Holtz grunge paper and cut out the number 4. I colored it with my cat eye stamp pad and added some glitter.

I apologize for the poor camera quality - we are fighting at the moment and I think the camera is winning.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Craft Your Passions "Anything Goes"

Scrap-Creations "Buttons or Bows"

Party Time Tuesday "It's all about Birthdays"

Stamp Insanity "Fave Color"

Birthday Sundaes "Cakes & Cupcakes"
