Christmas Gift

This week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches is a goodie - very versatile.  My final card was not how I imagined it would be but I'm happy with it anyway.

My original intention was to put another layer on top of the white panel then wrap the tulle around the center, but when I started playing with the tulle, it looked like gift wrapping so I decided to leave it as it is.  The candy canes are from the Scentsational Season set and matching framelits - my first time using them after having them for nearly 2 months.  Thought I'd better use them before Christmas is over for another year LOL.

All the specks on the card base are not stray bits of embossing powder - I sprayed the base with shimmer spray so it's all sparkly IRL.

Thanks for looking.

Stamps:  Scentsational Season; More Merry Messages
Cardstock:  Whisper White; Cherry Cobbler
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler; Versamark
