Yummy birthday card

This card I've made for a 6y girl, who celebrates her birthday in a few days. Her mother, a good friend of mine, invited us to the birthday party, so I wanted to make a special birthday card for her.
As Pam, at 365 cards, asked, I went to dig for some forgotten stash :), and what do you know, I looked very deep, as I was asked, and I've found two of them! one is the doily , and the other one is the corner chipboard. hip hip hooray! so thank you very much, Pam, for making me do so, 'cause there are a lot of those doilies so you all are going to see them around the coming cards...
I love this color combo! and some challenges took this combo. I inked the doily with blue & brown ink (and it looks as if I spillt some coffee over the doily LOL) The image is from simple doodles (don't forget to pop over there in a few days, as I start my GD for January! it'll be a lot of fun!), and I colored it with watercolor pencils, sakura metalic blue and added shiny pink stickles as toping of the cupcake, and it looks almost real :) very yummy. Imade the blue fan flower (it such a fun making them. maybe I'll get to post a turtorial about variant flower making techniques).
and it goes for the following challenges:
sketch - friday sketchers (there is also a blog hop there!)
color combo - #49 the color dare (I've made top 3 last challenge there!); #10 the play date cafe; #13 colour Q (Arielle brings each time a rocking photo for inspiration! thank you Arielle); #39 cupcake inspiration (Rachel also brings great cupcakes photos to inspire us!)
pastel colors - #4 lexi's creations
favorite of 2009 - #11 crafty cardmakers
time for celebration - #71 cupcake craft; charisma (happy birthday to charisma! and they're having a blog hop to celebrate);
celebrate food or drink (mine is food) - our creative corner

anything digital plus more challenge(s) - #29 pile it on
and last but not least , digging deep - day 306 at 365 cards
