I Love Promarkers DT Card - Use Only Two Colours

It's challenge time again at I Love Promarkers, this fortnight or theme is "Use Only Two Colours", and we're sponsored by Dr Digi, who kindly gave the DT a selection of images to play with.  I decided to use this fun Birthday Cake digi, which looks a bit squint, but with plenty of icing, definitely homemade!
I chose, as you can see, pink and brown for my two colours, although I did use the teeny weeniest bit of yellow for the candle flame, I'm sure nobody will hold that against me, I hope not anyway!  I used Promarkers (of course!) for the colouring.
 The pretty pink papers are all Lili of the Valley, from a pack called Pastel Dreams, I've inked all the edges with brown ink and added dark brown card for matting.
I used Spellbinders Curved Rectangles to cut out the topper and mat it up, and Xcut dies from my Party Time set to make the streamers and cupcakes, I topped the little cakes with tiny dots of pink Nuvo Crystal drops for sprinkles.
I used Personal Impressions stamps to stamp the sentiments in Rich Cocoa Memento ink, then matted them up with more brown card.
To further embellish, I added some layered ribbon, a matching button topped bow, and some pink gems.
