Hey There, Cupcake! - Anyone For Anya Challenge

It's Sunday! That means it's time for our weekly challenge over at {ANYONE FOR ANYA}. This week, the challenge theme is "SWEET TREATS" - create something treat inspired!
(with a stamp from The Greeting Farm or C.C. Designs.)

For my DT contribution, I created this card using the new C.C. Designs "Party Time Lucy" digi stamp, which you can purchase {here}.

Before I printed out the digi image, I manipulated it in Paint to add a Polaroid photo look around her head.  Once the image was printed, I inked her up with Copics and matted the "Polaroid" on black card stock.  I used Tea Dye distress ink around the edges of the photo to age it a bit.  I hand-printed the words "Hey There..." along the bottom.

The DP's are from Colorbok and the card stocks are from American Crafts.  The card base is 5"x5".
I stamped the word CUPCAKE along the bottom of the card base with Lawn Fawn's "Quinn's ABC's" stamp set (my new favorite alphabet set!).  I then colored in the letters with Copics with 3 different shades of green.  This textured card stock doesn't allow for much blending... it just absorbs whatever color you lay down, so keep that in mind if you try it.  :)

The cupcake stamp is from a set by Hampton Arts.  The stamp set name is "Block w/ Words & Icons"  (really?  how terribly NOT clever....) and it looks like this:

I stamped the cupcake block twice, colored one cupcake with Copics then cut both of them out to be layered for a little more dimension.  I added a gem for some bling, tied the card with some black/white bakers twine and that's it!

I'm entering this card in the weekly challenge over at the {ALL THAT SCRAPS BLOG}.   Also to the "Anything Goes" challenge #57 at {DO YOU STACK UP?}.

This is a gorgeous card! I love how bright and colourful it is. It reminds me of a cartoon, and I love cartoons. I love the fonts and I love how you coloured everything.
