Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 334

Sunday, November 1, 2015

Hi there, happy Sunday!
I hope you all had fun and safe Halloween yesterday!
Are you ready for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!?
This week's sponsor is Dilly Bean :-D

This color combo is so pretty!
Here is my take...

I used Not Quite Navy and Primrose Petal.
I felt like dusty navy, so I paired it with dusty pink ;-)

The sponsor generously provided us with several digital images to work with, and my pick was this super adorable penguin! He is SO CUTE with his scarf!

I started drawing the stripes at 1/4" from the top, then every 1/2" with the Not Quite Navy Marker using the grid paper. The sentiment is from the Winter Alpaca set, heat embossed with white then die cut with the washi tape die from the Mini Treat Bag Framelits. This is my latest favorite! 

I added a few more die cuts then sequins.
I didn't want him to freeze but those snowflakes and silver sequins are just so lovely, I had to use them!

My notes...
