Photo Inspiration time at Crafty Ribbons

Happy Thursday morning to you lovely peeps!
Time once again for a new challenge at Crafty Ribbons.
Thanks for all your fabulous creations on our last challenge, you really are a crafty lot aren't you?
Please stop by the Crafty Ribbons Challenge blog and see if you were one of our handpicked top 3 or our Random Winner!
So, onto our new challenge.
This time the challenge is hosted by the lovely Mandy and the theme she has chosen is:
Here is the photo we want you to use:
The fabulous prize for this challenge is:
A fabulous Want it All Selection of gorgeous ribbons.
So here is my project for this challenge:
I decided to use the colour scheme and the cupcakes for my inspiration.
I have used one of the new LOTV stamps called
"Never too old for Cupcakes" available here.
The image is coloured with a mix of Copics, Flexmarkers and Promarkers.  I love how all these pens work together.  The DP is a digital paper from Digiscraps 3 but I can't find a link to it anymore.  If anyone knows what it is can they let me know and I'll add it to my post.  I cut out the image with my nestabilities.
I have matted the DP onto pink card and then placed a piece of fabulous grosgrain polka dot ribbon down the middle of the DP and then added a bow from the same ribbon, which is, of course available at Crafty Ribbons here.
I also added a Tim Holtz clock die cut in the background which is chalked with two coloured chalks to match my colour combo. (Thanks Ali!!)
The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

So there you have it - my card based on the photo inspiration.
I hope you like it - I do!!
