Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #88

Edit:  This card won Top 3 honors at Frosted Designs for their 12.3.10 challenge!  : )

Good morning my friends!  Happy Sunday.  Let's enjoy it while it lasts.  So glad you popped in today.  It really makes my day!  It's time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  I think you'll have a good time with this one.  Here's my DT card...

Isn't this a fun one???  I love this image from Tiddly Inks.  It's called 'Bah Huggabuggs'.  {smile}  I just thought it was such an adorable Christmas image.  What brought about this card?  This week's photo inspiration, which is...

Now that's a perfect Christmas cupcake, don't ya think?  It was very easy to find my inspiration for this one.  Holly, holly, holly, and I wanted to try to get a Christmas tree in there as well.  Did it!!!  : )  By the way... our sponsor this week is Lawn Fawn.  They are offering this great stamp set for the lucky winner of this challenge.  Great, right?

I'm not sure you can tell very well from these photos, but I've glittered up the little huggabugs fluff on their santa hats, the star, the two little ornaments and a little on their wings.  I did a double edge punch for a lacey affect, then added a ribbon down the middle of it.  The sentiment is from Bizzy Becs Store blog and, believe it or not, they are FREE!!  Yep, I couldn't believe it either.  If you'd also like to share in Bizzy Bec's generous nature, go HERE.
