Candy Canes

Well here we are the 22nd December 2012 and I guess the Mayans got it wrong, hehe.   

Today I would like to share with you all the last of my Christmas cards for 2012.  For my card I have used a gorgeous stamp that I recently purchased from Bizzy Becs on line store from Saturated Canary called "Candy Canes".  

I have had lots of fun creating this card and being Christmas time couldn't go past playing with a bit of glitter. I used stickles and my glitter pens, unfortunately it hasn't shown up very well  but it is on the wings, dress, candy canes and the die cut embellishments.

Also used are Memory Box die "Frostyville Wreath" and on the inside " Flowering Christmas Tree", together with Poppy Stamp Die "Antique Lamp Post"  These dies are available for preorder here and also Bec has some  new ones which I must check out also available for preorder here.  

I was lucky enough to receive some hand made stick pins in a Secret Santa present recently and one of them was perfect for this card so couldn't resist using it.  Goes so well.

Here she is:

here is a look at the inside of the card using the "Flowering Christmas Tree"

I have also used a free sentiment which is available on the challenge blog here.  If you decide to use it don't forget to link back.

There is also still time left to enter into the final challenge for 2012 at Bizzy Becs "Christmas" so keep those entries coming.

Thanks for dropping by, happy creating.

Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year to all.
