If I were to get a personalized license plate for my card it would be "No Mo Sno".   I do not miss that cold wet stuff and never want to see first hand again.  However, I do like it as a design element.  This pretty sparkly cupcake is the inspiration for this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. 

The snowflake and silvery shimmer is what inspired me.  What will it be for you?  All the sweeties are anxious to see what you come up with, so get busy stamping and don't forget to link it up at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.
