Sending You Candy Cane Wishes--The Challenge #83-SPDMIU19

A few rules to keep things fun and fair!

4. Anything that is offensive to myself or to my viewers will be removed.
5. Have fun!

I am also playing along with SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #19.  I loved their sketch!  It was perfect for my card.

My card is created on a white card base.  Tempting Turquoise paper is used for the background.  I found a piece of candy cane stripes in my stash.  I used the stamp set and dies Merry Makers  from SugarPea Designs.  The circles were cut using the Zig Zag Stitched Circles dies from SugarPea Designs.  Copic Markers were used to color this funny little elf.  The sentiment is stamped in red ink.  A few candy dots were added for fun.  Wink of Stella added shine to my little fellow.  This card made me smile when I finished it!
