Hello! A card for CASE Study #170

I'm back with my second post of the day.  That hasn't happened in quite a while, huh?

I'm playing along with CASE Study #170 this week.  I couldn't resist this yummy inspiration photo provided by Cath at the Moxie Fab World Blog..
I can almost taste that cupcake, can't you?

Anyway, I immediately noticed the texture of the cupcake liner.  That crimped or pleated look.  So I pulled out my paper crimper and some early espresso card stock...and got busy.  Here's what I created.

I loved the color of the frosting on that cupcake, so I chose soft sky card stock for my "frosting" die-cut panel.  Love that color!  The snowflakes were die-cut then heat embossed with clear EP.  To give them a little extra pop, I added a few dots of crystal Stickles.
I'm loving these colors together.

Thanks so much for taking a look!
