Most of the time I gravitate to traditional colors for my Christmas cards but when the Power Poppy challenge was announced I knew I wanted to use the Candy Cane Classic image that I acquired in the recent sale Power Poppy had for Black Friday. I love that image and it is so fun to color. I hope you like my take on the challenge which called for the colors of Nautical Blue, Evergreen and Silvery Gray.
I colored the candy cane design with a mixture of Bic and Copic markers. I also took a white paint pen and added a highlight to each holly berry. Then I die cut the design out using Gina K. Designs small double stitched oval die as well as her large stitched oval die for the outline layer. I placed this design on some Gina K. Designs pattern paper and finished off the card by adding a few enamel dots from Stampin' Up!
So this card will be added to the Creative Confetti Challenge: Nature's Christmas Colors
and Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge: Anything Goes + Optional: Candy Cane.
Thanks for visiting and I hope your day is a good one.

Your Candy Cane turned out absolutely beautiful in the non traditional colors Verna...
So glad that you took advantage of the sale at Power Poppy as this is gorgeous. I love the traditional plaid background and the non-traditional colors on the canes. You will use this Digi often. I print up a bunch and color them in the evening while watching TV.
I absolutely LOVE this image done in blue & green! The plaid is fabulous and so is your coloring of the image! It's refreshing to see these colors for a Christmas card and I like it a lot!
Wonderful card. I really like the candy canes in blue. The plaid makes a nice background. This would be a great masculine card.
LOVE how you have colored this image, It's just perfect. You are a master with those Bics!!!!! The plaid background is perfect here too. I adore everything about this card!!!
I love these colours on your image! The candy canes look so yummy and the plaid is the perfect background paper.
Oh, wow, Verna, you just might start a new trend! I am loving the look of blueberry candy canes, especially with holly and surrounded by gorgeous plaid!! Happy Holiday Hugs, Darnell
Wow! I had to look real closely to see that the bow is actually colored rather than made with real ribbon. This is beautiful, Verna! Love the non-traditional colors. I'm glad you took advantage of the black Friday sale at Power Poppy!
This is the best card I have seen in blogland all year!! I really love the plaid and the colors you used. This one goes to the top of the class friend!! A+++++
