Pretty in Pink, Cupcake Birthday Card

Here is my first Birthday Card creation of 2012 :o)

I've had the digi stamp a long time, but I'm sure it's from Designed2Delight. I coloured the image using promarkers and for a change I dug out my watercolour pencils (that I'd almost forgotten about) to edge around the image rather than the chalks I usually like to use, I'm happy with the result but think I'll probably stick to chalks. I added glitter to the flowers and candle flame and to the flower in the centre of the ribbon, just for a bit of sparkle!

I layered up various pretty pink papers, added ribbon and pearls and here it is....

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
One Stop - Spots & Ribbon
