Bah Humbug Challenge 14 - Candy Canes

I must admit to having a mini panic when I saw that this week's challenge over at Bah Humbug was Candy Canes............ now this is something I absolutely knew I didn't have as I have always thought it was an American thing and not really my scene.

Anyway, I took up the challenge and started to trawl the internet and came upon this piece of clupart which was a gingerbread man swinging on a candy cane.  I printed the image out and coloured in with Promarkers and then cut out using nesties and matted onto green card.  The backing paper is another piece of clipart which I took into My Craft Studio to tile to make a background.  The base card was a 5" x 7" blank which I put through my die cut machine with a Go Kreate XL Frilly Frame and the backing paper was cut out using the next size die down.  The sentiment is computer generated and mat and layered using my Stampin Up punches.  I added some ribbon to finish off.

Thanks for looking.
