Bright and Beautiful Season, A Christmas Card

Christmas is getting so close! I'm on my finishing for my gifts and cards. Hope to have it all gone soon. Meanwhile I still need a few more Christmas cards.  One with the Merry Monday challenge.
So, here is this weeks inspiration piece. And the Challenge is to put candy canes on your card.
That took some thought and in the end I did something simple, but I believe, beautiful.

I used a piece of Candy Cane Lane DSP over top of Real Red with Real Red twine wrapped around.  The sentiment is from last years Embellished Ornament set, still in the Annual catalog though. It's one of my favorites, and 3 rhinestones for bling.

I put my sentiment down first, usually I do that last, but I wanted to see how much room I had before I cut my DSP and card stock.  My red bottom layer is 1 3/4" and my DSP is 1 1/2".
