Elzy Sparkles

Here's my card for Sparkle's Christmas Challenge. I do love to play each week, and have gotten quite a bit of Christmas cards done already. This week she gave us a challenge to use stripes on our card. She had a sketch challenge up a few weeks back but due to Trey's Tball schedule, I wasn't able to play, so I used that sketch this week.
I also did Rachel's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. For her challenge on this card, I pulled the blue as my starting point for the card, the circles on the plate are followed up in the circles on my ribbon and layers of circles on the bottom. I selected this Elzy stamp because of the holly on top of her head, like the flower on the cupcake, and gave her brown hair, from the bottom layer of the cupcake. I didn't overly bling up the card with embellishments because of the clean and simple look of the cupcake.

Gotta toot my horn a second, I was picked as one of her top fives last week! Mine is the bottom card on the right hand side. That's too neat to get two top fives in one week! It's a great feeling knowing other people are enjoying my little creations! Thanks, Rachel!

Supplies: DCWV cardstock, and paper, Elzybells, copics, shimmerz, stickles, nesties, TAC Goodies stamp set, SU Real Red, Ballet blue ink.
Had to add that my friend Barb has some Blog Candy up. She's a real sweet heart, so make sure you go check that out!
