Pretty Pixie Pedestal

First ink for this cute cute set! Isn't it adorable? I think it will be great for kid or adult birthdays. I love the fonts too, a little retro feeling, and with these colors today from the color challenge (Pixie Pink, Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery), I think it looks a little like an old fashioned candy store.
I stamped the cupcake 2 times, trimmed and then popped up the top, and then tucked the candle in between the layers. A little Dazzling Diamonds makes it look even more yummy.
I love the background text layer. I just inked my stamp with my SW Markers to give it the feel of designer paper.
Other bits and pieces, I embossed the pixie pink layer on the background and ran my Craft White ink pad overtop to give the embossing more definition.

Thanks for the visit!
