Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #42

Happy Friday everyone! Sorry I'm so late in posting my Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge. My computer froze this morning and the hubby was just able to fix it. Uggghh...I hate when that happens. Anywho, today Taylor has another fun sketch for us. I decided I wanted to use my new SASI Christmas images again. I seriously can't get enough of them! I also wanted to highlight the versatility of this set. I took the tree and tangled light cupcake image and only inked up the tree. To do that I covered the cupcake with paper and then inked the tree. After I watercolored the tree and added the rhinestones I stamped the holly cupcake on another piece of paper. I watercolored it and then cut it out. Finally, I placed her by the tree with 3D glue dots. To add a little extra I used my Shimmerz Blingz in Spiced Cider on the cupcake and Ultra Marine on the tree base. The cherry on top of the cupcake was adhored with Taylored Expression Fire Engine Red glitter which is also available as part of the Christmas Key Ingredients. So, if you want to play along 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!
