Cupcake inspiration challenge #36

Hi everyone! It's Sunday and that means it's time for another FABULOUS Cupcake Inspiration challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal! Check out this week's cupcake, how cute is this??

I was inspired by the white fluffy icing to use a snowman image and the yummy holly leaves. My card uses some of my favorite Jolly by Golly paper and chipboard stickers from Cosmo Cricket. This little snowman just makes me smile! I added some Zva Creative flower shaped rhinestones for his buttons and tag.

This card is pretty simple, I used some ribbon, a red button and some of the wired silver cord that I am addicted to of late. I was planning on doing some sewing on this, but I had a holiday craft fair today and my mojo took a runner!! LOL!

Everyone is invited to play along in the challenge!! If you do, be sure to link your creation to Mr. Linky on the HSE blog. Every week, Rach highlighs the top 5!! Congrats to this week's Top Picks !!!

Please help me welcome our December Guest sweetie -Elena, The Red Haired Girl!! Elena is an amazing stamper and we are super excited to have her with us and see what she does with the challenges. Now head on over to the Sweeties and see how they rocked this cupcake!!!!
