WMSC#74 Candy Canes

Since the rest of the week is going to be pretty hectic getting ready for Thanksgiving, I knew I better get my Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge  #74 card done early, so here is my take on the sketch by Claire Brennan.
My card today uses my new Waltzingmouse Candy Jar Filler set.  My friend Renee of It's a Patchwork Life, sent me a gigantic package of patterned paper, all cut up into nice, usable sizes.  I have been wanting to use this very sparkly candy cane print paper for a while and this sketch was the perfect opportunity.  I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the pinebough border, copics to color the candy canes, lots and lots of chunky glitter to sparkle them up and an embossing folder to add that snowflake pattern to the green circle image.  I stamped the bow four time, embossed it with silver embossing powder and popped it up.  The sentiment from Waltzingmouse A Cottage Christmas was stamped and embossed in silver on a Spellbinder banner.  I hope everyone is almost ready for their Thanksgiving celebration and of course, make sure you take some time to check out this weeks Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, you will see lots of great cards and gain tons of inspiration.

Wow, Cathy. This card is amazing. There is so much going on--every detail is so clever. I love how you made that bow and embossed everything in silver. Those candy canes look so yummy. I'm so glad that you wrote that you used an edge punch for the pinebough border, because I thought you fussy cut them all, and I was going to send you and Advil! Just lovely.
