Noel Candy Cane

Here is a stitched card, the pattern found at Hudson's Holidays blog (love this blog!)

I've just used simple matting, a ribbon strip (white stitched grosgrain... how cute is that!) and some buttons to embellish the stitchery image.

I've stitched the image itself in red and green, in stem stitch and running stitch. and added red glass seed beads for the berries.

Entering this creation into the challenges at:
2 Sisters Challenges #120 Christmas Sparkle (6/12)
Less Is More #96 Red and Green (6/12)
Digi Haven Merry Christmas (14/12)
Digi Haven - Anything Goes (29/12)
Sarah Hurley Challenges #75 Christmas (29/12)

Thanks for peepin'!
