My first cupcake challenge

I finally played in Taylor's cupcake sketch challenge -only took me 25 weeks, LOL! I was inspired by this totally cute card from Denise (Peanutbee). I REALLY love this sketch. What fun with all the circles, such a happy sketch!

I used a cupcake image I received thru the PIF Forum, I think it's from Hero Arts. I dug into my "must have", never used Cupcake DP by Basic Grey. I love the soft colors and they match perfectly with PaperTrey Ink's color spring moss, lemon tart, and sweet blush. I did some piercing on offsetting corners and used Bubblegum stickles on the icing. The sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Basics and stamped with Spring Moss. Both the image panel and one of the top circles are on dimensionals.

Thanks for the fun sketch Taylor! I hope to play more often.
