Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #94

Happy Sunday friends!!  I hope your weekend has moved along smoothly and you'll be able to enjoy your Sunday.  I've got a lot going on today, but nothing very strenuous so it should be a good day.  And... when it's Sunday, it's time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge and I believe you'll love it!!  Here's my attempt...

It was really fun coloring up this ca-yute Tiddly Inks image.  And I'm pleased with the results.  However, this is nowhere near what I had in mind when I first decided what to work up for this week's challenge.  More on that later.  Right now, here's our inspiration...

Scrumptious-looking right?  That entire thing looks edible, doesn't it?  And great colors to work with.  As usual, pinks in my photo aren't near as 'perky' as those IRL.  So... please use your imagination, 'K?  : )

Now, about this card.  First of all, I didn't even select this image originally.  I was going to use Mo's Digital Pencil's called 'Shy Valentine Nessa'.  I had her all colored up, almost done when I went and messed up her lacy heart!!!  ARGHHHHHHHHHH!!!  I tried to think of anything to try to salvage her, but alas, no luck.  I would have printed off another to replace the bad heart but my printer is still out of whack.  Soooo... I had to toss that idea.  Then I fought and fought with layout and which papers should go where.  As I said, I'm pleased with how it turned out, but yeesh, the process was...... let's just say 'frustrating'!!  : )  I'll bet that's wayyy more than you ever wanted to know.  haha!
