sparkly birthday cupcake

A quick post for today...I have such a busy night with all sorts of kid things going on! I wanted to take a few minutes to stamp for fun since I have been working on orders lately! I went to Splitcoast to check out the challenge for today...it was to use watercolor paper. That means I had to watercolor...well not had to, choose to! {bad idea} This is an area that I am not very good at...and that's putting it nicely! I just can't seem to get it down. I really think my "Monk" like qualities get in the way...I feel like I need to color it all in! I really need somebody who is good at this to show me how to do it...in person! Any takers?
Anyway...here is my card. I attempted a watercolored cupcake. After I colored it, I covered the edges in Cotton Candy Stickles...the flame and the sprinkles have Crystal Effects on them. The saying is from the Seasonal Sayings rub-ons.
Ok...gotta run...my kids are already starting in on me!!
chat at ya later....Have a great afternoon & evening!
