It's time for our first (of three) 300th Challenge Celebration challenges over at 
Cupcake Inspirations!! 

I hope you'll come over and join us. 

Today's cupcake inspiration is SPARKLE!!
You can go straight to the challenge HERE

We are sponsored this week by so many wonderful sponsors!!!

This cutie is a PolkaDoodles image called Winston Bear - Heartfelt. I colored him up using my Prismacolor pencils. I used my Shapeabilities heart dies for the embellishment and then covered it in Christmas Red Stickles. The card stock mat is from a pack of colored papers that I got from the Target craft section. The card base is Neenah Desert Storm.

The sentiment is from a WPlus9 set called Fresh Cut Florals. I inked it up in Versafine Black Onyx ink. The sentiment is cut out with my Stampin' Up die set.

I meant this for a friend of mine but my middle child saw it and wants to take it to her teacher who will be out tomorrow. :) 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
