Snowflakes (CIC245)

Here is this week's inspiration cupcake. Our challenge is SNOWFLAKES.  

Edible Snowflake Wafers from Lakeland

Here's my take...

You're probably wondering why I used the "Tiny Dancer" image from Stamp and Create when this is a SNOWFLAKES challenge. It is because my eldest daughter danced for the second time in her dance school's New York Nutcracker Ballet and next year my other daughter will be dancing in it as well. I saw this image and thought what fun I could have making them little notes of encouragement on performance day. Not to mention thank you notes and such for their teachers.

I colored my images using Prismacolor pencils and mounted it on Stampin' Up's Bashful Blue and Almost Amethyst, respectively, cardstock. The sentiment is Small Script by SU as well. My bigger panel is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and then I added Diamond Stickles to each and every snowflake. I know the lighting is bad (we are in the middle of a storm) but it sparkles beautifully. I didn't put anything on the inside because I figured I would use the space to write a note to the girls. I think they'll love it. :)

Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
