Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Candy Cane Reminder

CC Dec 21st photo CCDec21pic.jpg

Half way through our current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, and I found some fabulous red and white striped paper which looks just like candy cane stripes - score!

The paper is quite bold, so I toned it down a bit by embossing this beautiful wreath from Avery Elle's Winter Wreath in white on some vellum and overlaying it on the striped paper.  The bow was embossed separately, fussy cut and mounted on the wreath.  Added some turquoise dew drops (remember these LOL) and a touch of turquoise twine for splashes of colour.  Quick and easy.

Would love to have you play along with us this week. Who knows, you may even be selected as one of our future guest designers!

Now I have to figure out where I put all of my dew drops - a fabulous look!! I didn't notice that bit of turquoise in the inspiration piece until I saw your card - it's a great accent.

Thank you for the card. Merry Christmas to you!!
