Candy Kisses Christmas DT Card

Good morning everyone, it is Winter Wonderland Challenge time again
Wow didn't we have some great cards last challenge, I really enjoy visiting everyone and seeing your creations.

Avril set our challenge this week, we have a theme of 

Christmas Sweets  
  i.e. chocolate limes, marshmallows etc. However you can interpret this in many ways.  You can use Christmas Sweets on your card, or you can use the Christmas Sweets colours on your card, or you can be like me and create your own Christmas Sweets Card.  
I have tried to be totally different to allow everyone to see how you can, even if you don't have any stamps or the coloured card, create a Christmas card meeting this theme.

 As always the Winter Wonderland Teamies love to show you how to combo your Christmas cards with other challenges and as always I would not wish to disappoint.
So on looking at this card you might think how on earth could you combo that, here it is and see what you think
This is a card created from nothing but white card, red glitter, green glitter, polar white flower soft, a magnolia stamp (optional) a bit of ribbon, some liquid applique and computer generated words, cut out with an oval nestie.  I hand drew one candy cane onto white card, I then drew around this to create the second one and reversed this.  I took a piece of A4 white card covered it with hammered green card, placed the two candy canes on it and then got messy with the red glitter.  When this was dry did the same with the polar white flower soft.  I stamped my image (thanks to Polly who has such a wonderful collection) coloured her up, used some liquid applique for the dots on her dress.  Cut her out and sat her on some card, covered with a small strip of gold ribbon.  I printed of the sentiments, used the cuttle bug to cut them out and then rolled the edges in glue and then in the green glitter.  I then cut out the top V and the bottom V to make a half candy cane card.  I think if I had cut out any more there would be no where to add the sentiments and the card would have fallen over :) Wow this was so much fun and so so so so messy.

Here is a close up of the copic coloured image along with the glitter and flower soft.
So what could I combo this with you would be thinking......................................................

So here are the challenges I am entering this unique creation into.

Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club - Anything Christmas

Totally Gorjuss Challenge - Bling it on (well who said bling had to be diamonds) well even if they are a girls best friend.

Saturday Challenge - No patterned papers

Magnolia Down Under - Shaped Card

ABC Christmas Challenge - K = Kisses, I have a candy kiss or cross if you like, but that is my interpretation, you might not agree.

Totally Papercrafts = Photo Inspiration (red and green)
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 114 - No Designer Papers - not one in sight for a change.

Wow sorry for the big list again. Well at least it is easier to read it than to write and link it.

This as usual will be very kindly posted by Mr Blogger whilst I am at work.  Which means I will come home and whilst having my first coffee for the weekend, will link these then.

I would like to say hi to my newest followers Maggie and Creative Momma, thanks for joining me in my little section of blog land.

Finally I would like to thank all of those that visit and take the time to comment on my creations, I love reading all of the comments and fine each and everyone of them inspiring.

Hugs and Happy Crafting for the weekend
