CASE Study Challenge - Cupcakes - I mean Snowflakes!

It's Thursday so it's time for your weekly Case Study fix!  Did you see that we are honoring Cath Edvalson this month with lots of Tuesday Trigger inspired challenges?   If you love a good photo inspiration this is the place to be!  Can I pull a Cath here? Well?    CHECK IT!  If you can get past the fact that you are looking at a delicious looking, rich dark chocolate, totally yummy cupcake (sorry folks - hungry here I guess) you will notice the pretty snowflakes,  soft blue butter cream frosting, and a sprinkle of nonpareils...   Oh sorry...  

Ok so that's exactly where I took this one - an embossed frosting - I mean - card stock base, topped with crisp white snowflake die cuts, and a sprinkle of gems.  So where's the chocolate?  Well it's that rich dark strip of lace across the bottom of course!  Do you see it now?  YAYYY!  Mission accomplished!!
Need a bit more inspiration?  Check out what the rest of the design team made with this one! Our special guestie this month is Amy Ryall - make sure you give her a big CASE Study Hello!
