Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #37

Good Sunday morning to you all! and welcome to another Cupcake Inspiration Challenge!

Everyone is invited to play along in the challenge and if you do, be sure to link
your creation to Mr. Linky on the Hope Stamps Eternal blog.

Every week, Rachel picks the top 5 links and highlights them on the blog!! If you upload to SCS or PCP, be sure to use this week's keyword: CIC37.

Here is this week's cupcake picture - oh my aren't those little snowmen the cutest??? I just want to smush them into my mouth and eat them all down and savor the gorgeousness of all that frosting and gorgeous sprinkles candy Smiley from ....oops .... lost my train of thought.....

I decided to take my inspiration from the gorgeous pinks and fluffy whites - and when I was making this card I really wanted to use aqua for the ribbon and glittery present - but green was on my mind so that is what happened!

I used one of The Greeting Farm images which I see has been scooped up - man they are so popular you have to get them fast! There are a few more images that are just as sweet in the store, so make sure you get them while they last!

I paper pieced this sweet little girlie with the NEW Bella Blvd December Details Collection 12x12 Paper Pack - so gorgeous with all the beautiful greens and reds and pinks! yum!

In between the paper piecing I coloured with copics and then added some ribbon I had in my stash and also added some Stamping UP chunky glitter - the jury (me) is still out on this stuff - it kind of took on a mind of its own when I applied the glue with my Sakura Quickie glue pen. Any tips would be appreciated!!

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Communique Curves which I love - lots of love lately lol!

The background panel has been run through the Cuttlebug Candy Cane embossing folder - which I am also luvin' lately - my goodness I love everything Christmas - quite a change from the humbugger I was a couple of weeks ago!
Please make sure to take a frostry stroll Smiley from millan.netover to the other designer's blogs to see how they interprested these scrumptious cupcakes!!
