Seize the Birthday challenge & YNS Tasty Tuesday Challenge

There's a new challenge to make birthday cards using the sketch that they provide.  The name of the challenge blog is Seize the Birthday.  The 1st challenge started Thursday Jan. 10th.  This week the challenge is to make a girly birthday card using the following sketch:

I am also entering it into Your Next Stamp's Tasty Tuesday challenge.  The first Tuesday of every month they will present a yummy inspirational food photo for the given month. 

Here is the inspiration photo:

Here is the card that was inspired by both the colours of those yummy looking cookies and the sketch:

I used the Mini cupcake cutie Phiona stamp along with the matching die.  I tried to incorporate as many colours of the inspiration photo as I could using my prisma coloured pencils.  I popped her up on my EK Success punch. I also used the sketch to make my card. I really like this card but am not sure yet as to who the recipient will be so the inside is still blank.

I am also entering this card into the Sweet Stamps Challenge which is to use a die cut and punch.
