Inspired By All The Little Things #11

Hi Friends, I've got a cute birthday card to share with you today for the Inspired By All The Little Things #11 Challenge. 
After debating on which patterned paper to use, I decided to go with Paris Girl by Carta Bella that I hadn't used much. Then my new to me stamp set Cupcakes by Avery Elle came in the mail just in time for this card! I've had this set on my wish list for a long time.
 I didn't want to make a black cupcake but needed some high contrast for interest so I went with it. The card stock base is dark gray from Simon Says Stamp. For a nod to the tulle I went with sheer pink ribbon and for the tiara, I added a gem flower. ( I used much restraint because I was trying to use a big gem flourish but it would have overtaken the whole card!!!) Less is more!
I may have strayed a bit far from the inspiration pic but I am happy with the results overall. 
Let's see what you come up with.
Ta-Ta for now. :)

Here's a few more challenges I'm linking to:
