Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #40

Happy Halloween everyone!! I am so excited that it's finally here. I am equally excited about the upcoming holidays too. So excited in fact, that I made a Christmas card on Halloween. LOL ! I had this adorable gingerbread house from the SASI "Home Sweet Home" set already colored and when I saw the new Cupcake Challenge sketch I really wanted to use it. I colored everything in with my Copics and added some Coffee Shimmerz to the house. It looks good enough to eat! All paper and accessories are from the new Christmas Key Ingedients. I embossed the snowflakes on the chocolate panel with SU white embossing powder. To complete the card I added some dew drops to mimick the gumdrops on the gingerbread house. So, if you want to play along in the Taylored Expression Cupcake Challenge here are all the details.

1.You're not required to use cupcakes for the challenge, but if you got 'em why not use 'em!? :)
2.You're welcome to create something other than a card, just stick as closely to the sketch as possible and you'll be eligible for the prize drawing!
3.If you're uploading to Splitcoast use keyword TECC40 (for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 40 or link your creation on this post.
4.Each week, I plan to have a Featured Cupcake Sampler! The cutest and most creative sample from the previous week will receive the featured cupcake sampler honors. The winner will receive the sketch ahead of time in order to create a card that will be featured along with a link to your blog on Cupcake Friday!
5.Featured Cupcake Sampler this week is Mary Fish from Stampin' Pretty!
