Good Luck Cupcake

My Friend, Lynne, is moving to Glasgow next week so I decided to make her a good luck card.  I usually struggle with this sort of card, especially with a suitable image, so, when I won some free Limited Runs digis in a challenge, I couldn't resist this one to have stored away for an occasion like this.  All my friends know how much I love baking so this is a happy combination of cake and papercrafts!
It's been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers in my favourite ever colour combo, pink and green.  The good luck panel behind the image was stamped with an Anita's stamp in Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.  The papers are all Papermania, from the Little Cake Shoppe range and the sentiment is from a Personal Impressions stamp set.  I added a cupcake border made with a Martha Stewart punch, along with ribbon and gems to finish. 

 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Creative Belli - #158 - something sweet
Whoopsi Daisy - use your stash, I used old papers and an old rubber stamp
My Grafico - #149 - anything goes
Daisy Doodles - #73 - anything goes
Artistic Impressions - #19 - anything goes
Sweet Sketch - #183 - sketch
