Sweetest Wishes

The photo inspiration at Papercraft Star this week is this pretty little pic.

When I first saw it I immediately thought polka dots and set about coming up with a project idea.  Well, I never got anywhere with it.  Polka dots is where the inspiration started and then quickly halted.  I went back and took another, closer look.  This time I wrote down cupcakes, blue, lines, and repetition.  Back to the drawing board as they say. 

I kept thinking about cupcakes.  I pulled out my one and only cupcake set and played a minute or two.  Blue cupcakes...where is that going?  My littles really like Cupcake Wars on the Food Network which brought me to the "decoration" for the cupcake.  I think that's our favorite round.  Bring in Christmas Card Challenge's Snowman Challenge - snowmen and blue work together.  And while we're at it why not stick with blue throughout thanks to the Got the Blues Challenge over at Sweet Stampin'.  It seems impossible that this little card started out with the thought of polka dots, but here we are a Christmas Card all in blue for Little Man. 

I'll also be putting it up at the Blue Christmas in September Challenge at Here Come the Boys and the Anything Goes Challenge at Papertake Weekly.

And now, here are the sweetest wishes...

The cupcake and frosting are stamped with the same ink, the frosting is just stamped off twice to get a much lighter feel.  The snowman is popped up on foam. 

Thanks for looking.
