Cupcake Manga...

I wanted to buy a candle holder, but the store didn't have one. So I got a cake. -Mitch Hedberg

This week's Catered Crop Challenge has a little Cupcake Theme, so I went looking for a fun Cupcake image to play with. I Have TONS of cupcake images...really...tons! Rubber, Clear, Digi, I have a LOT of cupcakes...but none of them were just right! LOL :) So I went looking and found this Super fun Manga style Cupcake image on Deviant Art.

This week's Catered Crop Sponsor is Eat Cake Graphics!! A randomly selected selected participant will win a $30 gift certificate to spend at Eat Cake Graphics!!!

**A word abut Deviant art...PLEASE read the artists comments, if they do Not give you permission to use and color their image ASK THEM before you Use their Original Art! If they DO give permission, LINK THEM and Comment with a link to your project so they can see what you have done!!**

I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch (Making it a square,) and the Curtain Call colors...

A strip of the plaid paper and a smaller, softer version of the image finished up the inside...
