Embellies with a Twist at TCC - Anything Goes

It is the end of the month and we have another "Anything Goes" theme for our Monday Embellies with a Twist challenge.  We would love for you to join us at The Crafter's Cafe and take part.

My card features the colours from The Play Date Cafe - Challenge #142

Here is the card:


I coloured my image using the pink copic and a the celeste blue ink and cut it out.  I inked the inside of the happy birthday embossing folder with the celeste blue ink using a brayer, added the white card stock and put it through my cuttlebug.  I matted this onto the pink card (the edge coloured with my pink copic marker as I didn't have the right pink and that way it matched the pink on the cupcake).  I added my twine and then mounted this onto the yellow card.  I adhered the cupcake image using dimensionals and added some glossy accents on the cherry, ribbon and hearts to give a bit more dimension to the cupcake.
