I love this paper by My Mind's Eye and it was a perfect match for this challenge making it a win/win.  I paired Avery Elle's Winter Wreath with the current CAS(E) This Sketch and added a touch of twine for a little something extra and to pull in the candy canes.
 
Below is a list of the design team's blogs for some added inspiration.
