Candy Canes

Happy Friday!!  Time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week the challenge is "No Traditional Colors".  Our sponsor is DRS Designs and the winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to their shop (for rubber stamps!!)  I was totally going with purple as I think it is awesome for Christmas projects and is definitely not traditional.  Then I received this beautiful candy cane image to work with and realized the purple was not going to work.  I know there are non-traditional colored candy canes out there, but I just couldn't do it!  But as this image has double stripes, sometimes there are pink in those kind of candy canes and that is the direction I went.  And my all time favorite color combo is pink and green.  I do realize that green is traditional, but I don't think this shade of green really counts as it is more of a mint.  Anyway, enough blabbering; here is my card:
 Here is the sentiment on the inside:

September Verve Diva Dare--Terrific Trios (use 3 of something--I used three pearls and three sentiment stamps)
Holly Jolly--ribbons or lace
Treasured Times #25--anything goes
Christmas Card Challenge #43--inspiration photo
Sweet Stamps--favorite embellishments (ribbons and pearls)
Crafting By Designs--Get ready for Christmas
The Stamping Chef #48--anything goes
Fab 'n' Funky #230--Christmas

Stamps: DRS Designs "Candy Canes" (mine is a digi, but the real image is rubber); Verve "Merry & Bright" sentiments and snowflakes
Dies: Spellbinders classic circles, large and a scalloped circle I just got; don't remember the name; PTI "Frosty Flakes"; Verve "Flag It" dies
