TSSC40 Crazy for Cupcakes (pt. 3)

It's Monday again so it's time for Technostamper's Monday Sketch Challenge #40! Here is the sketch for today:

This looks pretty simple and straightforward but I did have a little time of it making it feel balanced to me. I wanted to use the cupcake from the Crazy for Cupcakes set (#111618, p. 64) since I hadn't used it on any of my cards yet. I also thought the "Celebrate You" circular stamp from Party Hearty would work for the circle. I paired these with a pink and brown color scheme and the floral paper from the Sweet Always Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the icing and candle part of the stamp onto Pink Pirouette card stock in Basic Brown, used the blender pen for some shading (which isn't very visible in the picture), and colored in the candle with cocoa and the sprinkles with chocolate. I then coated the flame and entire "icing" with my 2 Way Glue pen and applied Dazzling Diamonds glitter. This was overlaid on a cupcake stamped on Close to Cocoa and shaded with cocoa and chocolate markers.

The "Celebrate You" was stamped on white with Chocolate Chip Craft ink and embossed with clear ep. The gift image from Party Hearty was stamped in Regal Rose, the gift colored in with a Chocolate Chip marker, then covered with VersaMark and embossed with clear ep. This was punched out and layered onto the scallop with a Dimensional then layered on another scallop circle of Chocolate Chip and attached with Dimensionals.
