Where my Peeps at?

OMGoodness when I saw this image from Tracey over at The Stamping Boutique I jumped for joy!  I have something I need to admit to you all "Hi my name is Christy and I am a PEEPS addict!" LOL!!!  Yes, that's right I love these sweet little marshmallows and have as long as I can remember.  As a child we would always get 4 boxes of peeps in all their beautiful colors and 2 Cadbury cream eggs (which I hated).  So I would trade my sister my 2 Cadbury eggs for her 4 boxes of PEEPS- I know great trade right!

Well since going through my weight loss I have steered clear of these yummy delights 'cause I can eat them by the box. This card is the perfect birthday card I am giving myself as my birthday is on April Fool's Day and  I am running my 1st 1/2 marathon Saturday, so no peeps for me!  However I couldn't resist coloring up this image called Easter Cupcake for the challenge this week at Cooking It Up With Katie
Our challenge this week is
"Start with Sparkle, Add some Shine, & Finish with a Shimmer!!"

For my card I knew I was going to use bright colors and my NEW peeps paper pack that my friend Kim got me due to my addiction!  Yes it's full of peeps embellies. stickers, and fun papers covered with my marshmallow friends.  I have colored everything with Copics and then to add my sparkle I grabbed my Ranger Holographic embossing powder to make everything shine! The cupcake wrapper I paper pieced with a minty green scrap of paper that had embossed sparkly polka dots, but since I didn't care for color I added some Copics to it to make it pop.  I added a few bling and used my black Spica to add sparkle to some of lines and little doodles. The sentimet is also from The Stamping Boutique and is from the new set called Birthday set.

We are sponsored this week by Pizzazza Plenty and here is a little about their store: Pizzazz Aplenty began with only a bit of bling and some ribbon, but over the past few months, we've added so much more. . . from cardstock to cellophane bags, as well as a variety of embellishments for your cardmaking or scrapbooking projects. , , charms, stick pins, brads, buttons, cords, twines, laces, lots of ribbon, and over 20 choices of colors in our flatback pearls and rhinestones. In the next couple of weeks, teardrop pearls will be a new addition, and button stick pins with 4 buttonholes!  Remember, there's no such thing, as too much bling!  Judy Bennett.

The prize is a fabulous Prize Pack of rhinestones, pearls and other sparkly goodies valued at $10! Come on over and join the challenge and see what rest of team has created at Cooking It Up With Katie!
