Cupcake Inspirations 144 - January 22, 2012 - Snowy Pastels

Grab Our Button
Today I'm playing along with Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #144.  When I saw the inspiration photo - beautifully iced snowflake cookies -  I knew I had to play along!  I started by stamping my background with pink and blue pastel snowflakes from Waltzingmouse.  I added some pleated blue satin trim, icy pink glittery cord and bakers twine.  I topped it off with a pretty pastel and glitter snowflake. 

The snowflake is a triple cut of Spellbinders Lace Doily Accents topped with a Cheery Lynn snowflake cut from white glitter paper.  In the center is a snowflake gem topped with a pink round gem.   I dusted the background pattern with gems and pearls for a little added sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by to have a look - I appreciate your nice comments and encouragement!
