4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #204: Inspiration Photo

Good morning...
Sorry for my lack of posts last week.  We had an emotional week and I'm still trying to come to grips with reality.  I will share more later, when I can sit to write without my eyes filling up with tears.  So today is the start of another challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks.
Here is this weeks inspirational photo:
Isn't such a beautiful cake!!  That is another craft I wish I had time to indulge in!! 
Only if I had more hours in the day!!
Here is my take on this weeks challenge:
I struggle with color combinations...believe it or not, but that is a fact. 
So I browsed through the thousands of sheets of pattern paper and could not find exactly what I was looking for. So I opted to just colored cardstock, that is the for sure way of knowing I am playing with the correct colors.   For my image, I am using Some Odd Girl: Big Day Tobie stamp.  Colored with my Copics.
I added glaze to the icing of the cake and the eyes.  There is also shimmer on the flames of the candles, but you will have to click on the picture to get a better look. 

Hope you have a wonderful week.

I would like to share this is in the following challenge:
