Bittersweet Cupcake

Hello again everyone. Hope you are all enjoying your week-end. It has been record cold here in Austin! I am staying inside and keeping warm and crafting a little ;)
This is the latest challenge that I attempted. It is from Taylor VB. I don't have any of Taylor's stamps just yet, but wanted to work with this fab sketch she put out there, so here it is...
I am in the Valentine mode right now and enjoying this same paper pack from last year, Basic Grey's Bittersweet. I love the rich colours and I'm pretty sure that this won't be the last card you will see that I create using this pretty dp. The card base is a textured Bazzil chocolate, layered on top of that is SU Pirouhette Pink, the stripe from Bittersweet and another square of the flourished pattern from Bittersweet. The little cupcake (a new Lockheart that I bought from Ellen Hutson last week) was stamped in SU
basic brown and coloured in with my Copic markers and then I glazed the hearts. Don't know if you can tell from this photo, but they pop out a little.
The cupcake was then placed on a petite scalloped circle and that was placed on a CB heart die shape.
I made the little tag and cut out the stamped SU phrase hugs & kisses and arranged on the tag. I had this length of fine brown twine that I wrapped around the card front before I attached to the card base and tied this teeny-tiny bow, that took a couple of tries :) Thanks for peeking in,
