Believe Fairy...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #338, All Dressed Up Challenge #45~Anything Goes, AAA Cards~Anything Goes #53

Hello,

Another week has flown by and it's already time for my wonderful DT and our Surprise Sweetie to tantalize you with Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #338~Turquoise, Midnight and Gold.  Check these out: cupcake ornaments!  Incredibly pretty! Yeah, these would last on my tree for about a nano-second...scrumptious outside is sure to be scrumptious inside!


Our sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up StampsFor those of you - like me -  who are new to All Dressed Up Stamps, it's a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping. The coordinators, Anne Lise and Bettina, along with an amazing design team, are the  *The Dressy Girls*.  They are an incredibly active group, with a Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges, freebies, and stamps that can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis. 
We were provided with the most charming images to work with and my choice was Happy Christmas, Little Star, a gem of a wee fairy created by Wendy Burns, who lives in  Nottingham UK with her husband and two children.  Her signature touch is to create artwork that retains a hand-drawn/sewn feeling - and I think you'll agree: she's done that to perfection! 

Here's my sweet little fairy, coloured with my Chameleon markers, surrounded by gold stenciled stars and a gold foil die-cut.  She's so adorable that I *had*


to make a second one...

One of these is heading to Ms. T, my darling ballet-dancing niece...Hope she likes it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Turquoise, Midnight and Gold: where will these colours take you?  Looking forward to seeing your creativity in the Cupcake Inspirations gallery!  And the bonus: the winner will receive 2 digis of their choice from our generous sponsor.
