A Smile and a Cupcake

This was a combined challenge using the Theme from Heart2Heart "Let them Eat Cake" and the Hand Stamped Sentiment Sketch Challenge #214.  Why not a cupcake with a Sunny Smile?  And when I saw the Sentiment on the Stamp Set S1412 "Cutie Pie SOTM" I couldn't resist a Smiley Face as part of the card. The Sentiment makes this card a pretty generic card for any occasion and/or age.  Raised the Sentiment with 3D Thin Foam Tape, and cupcakes were also raised on the Sentiment for more dimension (see photo of closer view below.)
