Pink and Purple

I've gone to heaven.  Pink and purple are my favorite colors.  Flowers in icing are very high on my favorites list too.  If it didn't make me dream about eating cake I'd frame this photo and stick it right in front of my work space.  When I laid eyes on this photo I didn't feel like trekking to a bakery so I got busy working on a card for this week's Cupcake Inspirations challenge.  We're sponsored by Prairie Fairy.  The winner will have a choice of 5 images, nice prize, if I could I'd be playing along.  

can you see her pearl earrings?  click on the photo to enlarge it
For my card I used one of Prairie Fairy's Gilly images.  This character has grown on me.  She's so darn cute and lots of fun to color.  She's perfect for a little girl's birthday card but equally fun for an adult. 

To give her eyeglasses the look of actually having lenses I used Ranger's Glossy Accents.  To punch it up a little there's some stickles in her hair and on the green stripes and dots on the cake.  Those yummy looking flowers on the cake inspired me to dig out some of the flowers I horde. 

The stickles and glossy accents were still wet when I took the photo so there's no picture of the inside. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Prairy Fairy "Birthday Gilly"
ink - hp printer
paper - Georgia Pacific white cs; Doodlebug "Cake and Ice Cream"; MFT "Bubblegum" cs; Bazzill "Intense Kiwi" and Intense Amethyst"
miscellaneous - copics; stickles; Ranger's Glossy Accents; lavender lace; button; brads; Maya Road big pink central flower; assorted flowers from Michael's $1 bin; sewing machine
