The Lollipop Ladies Challenge #5

Hope you are all having a fabulous week - today I have my Design Team card for the Lollipop Ladies - these challenges are flying by so quickly - it will soon be Christmas.  Speaking of which, that's the theme for this next challenge - it's all about Candy Canes - here is the inspiration picture:

 And here's my card:



Seeing as the bonus theme was Christmas, I decided to make up an early Christmas card - I went with the stripes on the candy cane and chose this pattern paper by Stampin'Up which is called Candy Lane.  I've also used the Tree Trimmings stamp set by Stampin'Up.
The tree decorations have been stamped onto cardstock, then cut out and poped up onto the circle.  I've used my Nestabilities to create the scallop circle in the Kraft cardstock.  I've added a jumbo eyelet and some Riding Hood Red tafetta ribbon.
To complete the card, I've added the sentiment 'happiness' and used the arch lattice punch by Martha Stewart along the bottom edge.
Here's a closer look:
We hope you will play along this week - pop over to the Lollipop Ladies challenge blog to get all the details - I look forward to seeing what you create.
Til next time....

What a perfect card for this challenge Chantelle, so very clever. I love the colour scheme, and really love the designer papers you have used. I'm going to miss last years DSP's, am not as fond of the new ones.
Such a great Christmas card, am wishing I still owned that set :)
