Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 300th Challenge Celebration

hi hi hi!

how exciting to be part of the Cupcake Inspirations' 300th challenge celebration!! (and NO, i can't say that three times fast...or even once! lol!).

today, i was lucky enough to be able to help kick off the Confetti challenge over there, be sure to check it out!!

isn't that photo awesome! besides the fact that i want to devour each and every one of the inspiration photos, i just love the idea of confetti!!
so i decided to make a shaped, shaker card!

aw, i LOVE it!
i created a shaker on top of the cupcake's icing by stitching some vellum and throwing in some sequins! then i added some light watercoloring to the patterned paper cupcake wrapper, i love how that turned out!

and, we can't forget Newton! i actually used one of the images from a Christmas set! that little Newton on the snowman from Newton's Curious Christmas was the PERFECT fit! the sentiment is from Newton's Birthday Bash! i just colored the banner with copics to coordinate with Newton! 

oh, i really hope you can join in on the fun and play along!
