Crazy for Cupcakes card

I found the inspiration for this card on the wonderful Jenny Moore's Stamping Moments blog. Where she used Bird on a Branch, I got one of my favourite sets out - Crazy for Cupcakes. The reason I like this set is because you can colour it in, you see I'm still a child at heart............
The base card is Melon Mambo and Basic Black. I cut off part of the front and replaced it with a piece of polka dot window sheet (from the excellent Night and Day speciality paper pack currently available in the Mini catalogue). Before attaching the Basic Black to the front of the card I used the Eyelet border punch along one edge. I then attached a piece of black gingham ribbon around the front.
The image is stamped in Basic Black ink and coloured using Melon Mambo ink and a blender pen. This was then popped up onto dimensionals.
Of course, after making one of these cards I couldn't stop ...................
