Molly's Cupcake


     Here's a quick card for today from Whimsy and Stars Studio.  It wasn't quick to make, but it's going to be a quick post cause I've got a ton of housework to catch up on.  LOL
     This little cutie from Mabelle is called "Molly with Cupcake".  As you can see I used yellow and blue again on this card and threw in another one of my fave colors, chocolate brown.  I iced the cupcake with Liquid Applique and popped the cherry, it's leaf, and her hat flower up on foam for a little extra dimension.  Here's a close up.
     The fun sentiment was created by my sweet friend Dawn at LilyPinkScraps.  She offered it as a freebie and you can find it right here.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Totally Stampalicious--fave color combo
