Keep Calm and Carry a Cupcake

Keep calm and carry a Cupcake--at least that's what grandmother always said. But after Little Red took the shortcut through the woods, she heard the wolf howl and  lost her cool--and her cupcakes! Poor grandmother, will she ever see Little Red again?
Bet you can't guess what the new Squigglefly challenge is this week?! CUPCAKES!!
Use cupcakes in your image, patterned papers, embellishments, and don't forget to use a Squigglefly image! If you do that, link up your card or project and you're in the running for free digis!
I used a Squigglefly image called "Little Red" by the talented Fawn Palmer. I colored her with Copics, distressed her frame with some Tim Holtz ink, framed her again with cardstock, and popped her onto a paper doily.
Although this image comes with two (yes, TWO!) sentiments, I used a 3D sentiment sticker to go along with this week's theme. Patterned paper is from CTMH and I used a few teal-colored skittles for embellishments. My cupcakes come in the form of washi tape and my card is complete!
Now back to Little Red...
When she lost her cool, she ran off the path and straight into the arms of the big bad wolf. But never fear, her basket was full of yummy cupcakes. She shoved a handful of these delightful treats into the wolf's mouth and ran straight to grandmother's house, where she called animal control to take care of that hungry critter so he wouldn't bother Little Red again.  Last they heard he had been adopted by a nice family who owned a bakery and he was fat and happy!
Don't you love a happy ending?

What a fun story you created while making your card! I sometimes think of background stories when I'm coloring too! I love the little doily behind the image.
