Holly Jolly Cupcake Inspiration Challenge

Hello blog friends! :) I hope you have had a fabulous weekend! I am here (a wee bit late) to share my project for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge this week. This CIC is sponsored by Lawn Fawn, and by playing along with us this week you could be the lucky winner of a super cute Lawn Fawn stamp set. Please check out all the details at the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge Blog.

As usual we have a beautiful, yummy cupcake photo to inspire our challenge creations. Can you say gorgeous!?! I stuck pretty closely to the inspiration photo this week, and I'm glad I did. I even dusted off my Cricut to make the holly die cut. ;) I used the Anita Be Stampin Aspen digi image as my main image, and the sentiment is from a really old and most likely discontinued Elsie Flannigan for Fontwerks rubber stamp set. I am entering this card in several challenges, which will all be linked up below.

Please stop by the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge Blog to check out all of the creations by the CIC DT Sweeties and play along with us. :)
