CIC36 - Magic Hat


I've missed the last few weeks doing the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge over at Hope Stamps Eternal but I'm happy to say that I'm back this week with a card for the challenge.  Hope chose these delicious and delightful Holly Cupcakes from, Pink Cake Box to spark your creativity. 
When I saw them I just knew I had to try and get a card ready since I had just found the perfect piece of  Designer Paper while digging through some scrap paper just a few days ago.  It's a pattern I've had for some time and I have no clue who the maker is (sorry about that) but I really thought it would work well for the challenge.

Next up I picked out my image.  I love this snowman image by (Print Works - Frosty)
It makes me smile.  I decided to highlight the hat image so I stamped it twice and them cut out the hat portion with a circle Nestie Die.  The image was colored with Prisma Colored Pencils.  I added Frosted Lace stickles to the snowman and snowflakes and highlighted the holly berries on the hat with a Red Spica Glitter pen.

Details:  Card Stock: Garden Green (SU)  Textured Red & Olive Green (Bazzill), Designer Paper (source unknown), Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Martha Stewart Punch, Chili Sprinkles (Annabelle Stamps)

Be sure to stop by Hope's blog and check out the wonderful cards by her Cupcake "Sweeties" team and the Guest Designer this month, my friend, Elena (The Red Haired Girl)  -  Then why not give this challenge a try yourself.  It can be "addictive" and oh so much FUN!
