CAS Christmas Cupcake

I've played with lots of textures lately, but today I was in the mood for CAS. I found this Bugaboo cupcake image in my little bag images I've already colored up and thought it would be perfect for the challenge over at HJCC.

The layout is inspired by this week's sketch over at Sketch Saturday where they're hosting a blog hop to celebrate their 300th sketch.

The sentiment is from a Dylusions set. I love this one, I think we're all allowed to enjoy some sweets for Christmas, without feeling (too) guilty...
I mounted the cupcake on foam and placed it onto a piece of vellum paper which I embossed using white EP. The stamp I used is from Kaisercraft. The sentiment is also heat embossed, but with green glitter EP.

I only added a white string, no other embellishments.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - Sweet Treats
2) Sketch Saturday - #300 Sketch
3) Twisted Tuesday - Clean and Use Green
4) Christmas Card Challenges - #15 CAS
5) Completely Christmas - #2 Anything Goes
6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
