Create CCMC144 Petal Cone Cupcake

This is an entry for the Create CCMC 144 
Inspiration Challenge HERE.   The inspiration piece
is pasted below.
I didn't like all of the colors in the inspiration piece,
so chose instead Pacific Point, Pink Pirouette and
Basic Gray.  I liked the piece at the top of the
cake that reminded me of a cupcake.
I tried to maintain swirls, stripes and the white ribbon.

Set:  Elements of Style
Accessories:  Big Shot Petal Cone Die, Crimper,
Manhattan Flower and Tulip Embossing Folders,
White and Pink Ribbon, Rhinestones.
