Yummy Double Challenge

I was in the Verve forum today on Splitcoast, and I noticed the August Project Parade challenge , based on this yummy picture. The challenge was to use shades of pink & brown in your design. I decided to combine this challenge with Beate's weekend sketch challenge. (So glad she is back from her summer break!)

I used some scraps of retired SU dp and my new scallop punch to create the Close to Cocoa layers. I also pulled out some Flirty ribbon (also retired SU) and Aged Copper Hodgepodge Hardware (again, retired SU). I thought these little cupcakes (colored with my new Copics) were perfect for such a yummy inspiration picture, and since I've been in a blingy mood lately, I topped each one off with a pink rhinestone.

Stamps: Clear Cupcakes (Hero Arts)
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, SU dp
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Copic markers (E31, R32, RV04), ribbon (SU), Aged Copper Hodgepodge Hardware (SU), scallop punch, dimesionals, rhinestones (The Paper Studio)
