Cupcake Birthday Card

I so wanted to make a bright and fun birthday card.  And what great inspiration to have than a PageMaps card sketch to follow.  

I'm not sure whether my embellie is a cupcake or a milkshake.  But it sure looked like a cupcake to me at 1st glance with it's very bright colors.  After finishing the card, I just don't know anymore after staring at it for a while.  Was that a straw or toppings?!  lol  Hey, but the card's color combination reminds me of ice cream colours with ice cream flavours of mango (yellow), ube (violet) and strawberry (pink). {wink, wink}
