Paper Sweeties 2016 Inspiration Challenge!

Happy New Year!!!!!
I hope all my stampy friends have a great 2016!!!!
I am sending ALL of you Sweet Thoughts!

This is my card for our new Inspiration Challenge here at Paper Sweeties

Below is our beautiful inspiration photo:

Doesn't that cupcake look delicious????
That is what inspired my card!

My card base was made with a Drop-ins die from Sizzix .
My pretty little cupcake was made with the Paper Sweeties  Sending Sweet Thoughts stamp and die bundle. I die cut the cupcake and then dry embossed the icing. I stamped the cupcake wrapper in Versamark ink and then used a clear embossing powder to give it dimension.

The snowflakes are from the Holly Days stamp & die bundle. I also stamped the snowflakes with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with silver. And of course I had to add some beautiful sequins from the Paper Sweeties Shoppe!

I hope you will play with us with this month here at Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge! You could be a winner of a $25 gift certificate to the Paper Sweeties Shoppe!

Mackie, that cupcake makes me drool! I love that embossed frosting! So happy to be a part of the PS team and meet yet another North Carolinian! I do notice you're a Panthers fan! I like Cam Newton but I'm a huge Patriots fan myself but I do also love the Tar Heels! Looking forward to lots of fun creative play with everyone and getting to know you. Happy New Year!
