Holiday Card 3 - C for Candy Canes

Hello, everybody!  I'm back again today with another holiday card.  Inspiration for my holiday cards has come from the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place - she is having her sixth annual Month of Holiday Cards ChallengeDay 3 is "C" - I went with Candy Canes.  (For an update on my husband's health, please see my earlier post here.)

The vintage image is from Gecko Galz Frosty Digital Collage Sheet and I added a red gem to the bow.  The candy canes and words are from Beccy's Place Christmas Candy.  I used the precoloured version and fussy-cut, and then added a bow (Tim Holtz bow punch) and dark red gem.  I added a die-cut snowflake banner from my stash, embellished with red gems.  The baker's twine is from my stash, and the patterned paper is Studio Calico Magical 6x6" paper pad.

Awwww, that snowman is adorable Kitty, what a sweet face he has. I love the big candy can he's holding and the lovely little bird too. The snowflake garland across the top of the card is wonderful, what a great die that is.
Well done!
