Life's Is Short--Eat the Icing First!

I"ve created a card for the MFT Sketch this week.  It's #13 and here it is:

Here's my card:

I wanted to use some bright, sunny yellow paper this week.  Don't you love the brightness of it?  Better put on your sunglasses, as it's really bright, eh?  I colored it with my copics and added some bling with a Heidi Swapp heart that I covered with bright yellow stickles and fixed to the card front.  I sponged some yellow distress ink around the background for the image to add some more brightness to it after I cut out the shape with my spellbinder dies.  I added some glossy accents to the cherry and some more yellow stickles to the sprinkles on the cupcake. 

I just love it!  Any comments are greatly appreciated.
