{Cupcake Inspirations} Color Combo Challenge!

Hello friends!
Hope you've enjoyed Halloween however you've chosen to spend it!
I had a great evening with hubby and just stayed in and relaxed by watching movies!

Today starts a brand new challenge over at
This week we have a yummy color combo for you to try:
The selection of cupcake colors are:  rose, white and navy!
I think this is a great combo to use for pretty much any occasion that you have!  I have actually come up with a totally different idea for my design below.

We also have a wonderful sponsor joining us for this week too:
Dilly Beans

The winner of this challenge will receive 3 digital images!  So be sure to play along for your chance to win or become one of our "Sweet Six" picks!! :)

The sponsor was kind enough to share some images for the design team to work with and here's what I've decided to do with it:
I have used this adorable image called Penguin Framed.
I have decided to color in the image using the above color combo for the challenge on my image.  I wasn't sure about making the penguin features with navy colors, but I think it turned out pretty nice!  I added some rosey cheeks and used my white gel pen for highlights.  I've also added some Stickles glitter to the heart on the penguin,  I took a Whimsy Stamps stamp set called Christmas Greetings to stamp some snowflakes along the edge of the penguin frame as well as the sentiment under the Polaroid frame.  I actually just took the image and made mine own Polaroid frame with it.

I decided I wanted to add a bit more to it, so I took some white twine and made a bow over top of the Polaroid frame and added a snowflake sequins with a glittery dot in the center.

Hope you've enjoyed my creation today!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!  See you soon!

You and those yummy cupcakes that look so good. Love the penguin in blue, I think the darker or navy worked out really well. The snowflakes in the background are nice. Love the pink, the sparkles and your wonderful frame. Great idea.

EEEE..Vicki, this is seriously one of the totally cutest penguins EVER! The navy suits him (or her?) wonderfully, while the rose scarf and hat are simply darling! The snowflakes and the wee heart are such charming special touches! So thrilled to be part of the Cupcake team; already inspired about how to add 'little things' to images to make them pop (like those sweet little rosy cheeks I want to pinch!)!
