Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #87

Hello Sunday! :) It's that time again....Cupcake Inspiration Challenge time. Woot woot! This week the CIC is sponsored by Amber Ink, who has provided digi images for the DT Sweeties to work with.

Here is the beautiful cupcake that helped to inspire my creation. Now that is an absolutely gorgeous cupcake, if I do say so myself. ;) I love using non-traditional holiday colors, so much so that my Christmas tree is always decorated in pinks, silver, and crystals.

I used this ornament digi image with some Cricut Plantin SchoolBook die cuts to create the word noel. I really like the way this clean and simple card turned out, but the photo of my card...not so much. LOL It's difficult to see in the photo, but there is really a lot of shimmer going on there. Even the cryogen white cardstock shimmers!

I also want to be sure to mention that my card was inspired by Susan (aka LateBlossom)'s card that can be viewed on her blog here. Thanks so much Susan for the inspiration!

Please stop by the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge Blog to check out all of the fabulous creations by my fellow DT Sweeties and play along in the challenge. It should be a fun challenge this week. I can't wait to see your creations!
