Christmas Cupcake

Happy May first!  Since it is the beginning of a new month, it means it is time for another challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  Remember, it is an anything goes (as long as it is Christmas related), month-long challenge.  As always, our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will receive 7 images of their choice.  It doesn't get any easier or better than that!  Here is my card for some inspiration:
I decided to use a vellum snowflake die cut as I didn't want to cover up any of the image.  It gives a bit of subtle dimension.
As is my new beginning of the month tradition, I have included a picture of my "bits and pieces" stash.  I think I did a terrible job this month on using it up.  Actually, I think I added to it this month instead of taking away.  I can only think of one thing that I used and must have added 3 or 4 things.  I'll have to do better next month.
 And here is the picture from last month for comparison:

Now, it's time to hop on over to the CHNCC2 blog to see the rest of the projects from the DT.  Thanks for stopping by.

Little Miss Muffet #84--anything goes
Sister Act Card Challenge #54--anything goes
