Warm Winter Wishes Cup of Coffee...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #388, 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, Twelve Days of Christmas Challenge

Hello,

I'm here, on this frosty Sunday, to invite you to Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #388~Colour Challenge, where we're tempting you with this high-top swirl chocolate (or so I've decided it is) cupcake (hmmm...wonder if that's actually ice cream...soft ice cream...as in DQ soft ice cream...I love DQ soft ice cream...sorry, distracted!) sprinkled with *the* perfect amount of gold stars and pops of red 'berries.' Creamy deliciousness, I'm sure!



Our sponsor is Craft Classes Online; the winner of this challenge will win a  a free seat to any of their online workshops found on the CCO website with a regular price of $25 or less.  That is so cool!!


I've stenciled a coffee card using Candy Apple DI (should have used a 'heavier' touch. Let's call this 'light poppy', okay?), Tea Dye DI (steam and saucer), and gold shimmer-paper for the snowflake. Warm Winter Wishes rounds it out...


Of course, given this is a coffee-themed card, I'm heading off to the fabulous 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop,
This is our wrap-up challenge for 2016, so please be sure to play along with your 
Poppy, Cream and Gold creations!

You have until JANUARY 7TH to join the fun!
See you in the gallery!

  3. Beautiful card, Carol. I just adore your stenciling. I will imagine this is full of deliciously creamy and maybe a little caramely hot cocoa. Yum! While I'm sure DQ soft serve is delish, I much prefer their chocolate shakes. Not that you asked, but thought I'd share. :) hee, hee. Good to see you and your lovely card! Hugs!
