Candy Cane Christmas.....

Hello everyone: I have the joy to be a Guest Designer for the HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE and this is my second contribution to it. If you want to you can see my first card HERE and the card that won me this DT spot HERE.  It's no secret that I adore this little critters so, being a part of this challenge blog is simply fabulous.
Here is my card for today, February 5th. challenge which is "Anything Goes with an option Challenge Theme of SWEETS OR HEARTS"

This image is called "Candy Gram", isn't it just the sweetest?
I stamped it on watercolor paper with Versafine black ink and clear heat emboss it then, colored the brown mousy with some very old Derwent watercolor pencils, I really love the brown colors on this set. The black little mousy is colored with a SU black marker as well as the candy canes.
The pine branch details is done with the retired SU die set called "Pretty Pines", the pattern papers and the ribbon, are from my stash.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.
The sentiment is from another retired SU set called "Joy to the World", the candy canes on the bottom corner are from a Power Poppy set called MERRY LITTLES.

I hope I inspired you to come and join the party at the HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE, for more inspiration, take a look at the amazing and beautiful creations of the rest of the Designer Team.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Cute card, Maria. You managed to get the option of the sweet and the heart with those candy canes forming a heart and the bonus of it being a Christmas card for next year. Wonderful inside of the card, too. Thank you for being a guest designer with us at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge, again. [Bunny]
