CSS September Inspiration Hop

Hi there!  Tonight I am hopping along with some of my fellow Stamp TV Center Stage Alumni for a yummy inspiration blog hop.  See those gorgeous cupcakes?  That is the inspiration for tonight's hop.  I took my card idea from the pretty pink and brown cupcake.  The swirls on top reminded me of a snowflake, so I ran with that idea.  You should have arrived at my blog from the Kay's  amazing blog, if not you can go back to StampTV and start at the beginning.  You wouldn't want to miss a thing!

 There are no fancy techniques to this card, just lots of luscious layers and some pretty ribbon.  The stamps I used were from the Gina K Designs Blessed is the Season set. The card recipe is listed below.  The next stop on the hop is Melissa's awesome blog.

Recipe:
All images/cardstock are from Gina K. Designs
Layer a piece of Passionate Pink cardstock to an embossed piece of Innocent Pink cardstock.  Tie ribbon around the right side of the pink pieces and layer to a Chocolate Kiss card.
Stamp snowflake in Rosebud Clearsnap ink randomly onto a PL White panel.
Layer snowflake panel to a Chocolate Kiss panel and layer to the left side of the embossed panel.
Stamp snowflake in  Clearsnap Chiffon White (really light pink) ink on a scrap of white cardstock and overstamp sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  
Add sentiment panel to a Chocolate Kiss panel that has been punched with an edge punch.  Layer to image panel.
Add rhinestones to image and sentiment panels.
