Sweet 16!!

I'm at the beach on vacation and brought some supplies for the few days I'm here alone. I decided to combine a few challenges since I don't have my full array of tools and embellishments. This card was inspired by the colors in the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #121 Photo. The Cupcake Craft Challenge #153 this week is called "How Old?" and it is to use a number on a Birthday card so I chose Sweet 16. I also decided to use the sketch at Skipping Stones Designs Sketch Challenge #87 created by Teri Anderson. 

Here's my card.

1. Card stock - Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White (Stampin Up)
2. Decorative Paper - Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade (Stampin Up)
3. Stamp Sets - Bake Me a Cake - Cake & Happy (Lawn Fawn) Strawberry Lemonade - Sweet (Wilson Designs) Numbers (Studio Calico)
4. Ink - Black (Memento), Stampin Write Markers - Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder, Melon Mambo (Stampin Up)
5. Ribbon - Wisteria Wonder (Stampin Up)
6. Brads - Lucky Limeade (Stampin Up)
7. Dies - circle, scallop circle (Nestabilities)
8. Glossy Accents (on 16)
9. Gold Smooch Shimmer Paint (on candles)
10. Twine - White (Stampin Up)
