Challenge #65

I didn't plan on using this image... it's a free digital image from Jade Dragonne and called Flora. I originally thought she was blowing a kiss and realized as I was coloring her she instead is sucking on her fingers. :-\ I wanted to gift this to my sister as a Mother's Day card. While putting it together, I realized... I might could make it work! :) I'm no quitter!

I kinda like how it turned out too!

For this sister's last birthday, I made her a card with cupcakes and you can see it here. I thought I could use this card for an inside joke as well. :)

When I was very young... so young I have no memory of it... but the story goes we were celebrating her birthday and my mother loaded a tray of cupcakes in the backseat of our then vehicle. When we left the farm, my brother and she threw me into the back seat... this was before the days of car seats and seat belts... it's a wonder I survived my youth! lol Well... long story short... when we got to the party... I'd stuck my fingers in ALL the cupcakes and was covered head to toe in frosting. I ask you... WHO places a child next to a tray of cupcakes!?! lol This happened well over 45 years ago and to this day... I'm not allowed to guard cupcakes! Anyway... I thought to use the word "Yum" on a banner but while looking for that I found this sentiment and decided to go with this one instead. So anyway, here is the card:
I used card stock, ribbon and printed paper from my stash. The table image is from a Hannah stamp set. I added some Liquid Applique to the cupcakes on the table which are cutout from some printed paper. The sentiment is from The Angel Company (bought out by Red Rubber Designs! I was so thrilled to learn this!). I colored the image with Copic markers.

I am entering this in the Color Me Creative Challenge #65 - All About Hair challenge.
