Bah humbug candycanes

This week at Humbug hall the theme is candy canes which was very opportune as while I was at Ally Pally on Saturday I bought a pack of Christmas paper that had one with candy canes on it and a stamp for 50p!!!!
Bit of a long sentence that, sorry:) Anyway using a 5" base card I tore some BP and inked the edges with Bundled Sage and added an embossed rectangle matted and layered on BP and red mirri. I used ink again to colour it and then topped it with some images of candy canes that I masked, coloured and glittered. I added some inked foliage around the edges and used a Christmas brad and die cut snowflake for decoration.
Thanks for looking :)
