Loves Rubberstamp Card Challenge - Merry Christmas

Here I am, back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge! This week's challenge with a week to go for Christmas is to make a Card using the theme Merry Christmas! Are you ready for Christmas? Anyways I started off using Always Artichoke paper for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I used Daisy Ds 'Mistletoe Memories' for the rest. I added 3 layers before cutting out the fourth layer by using Spellbinders 'Polka Dots' die and green velvet holly paper that I had in my stash.
I stamped the 'Candy Cane Window' by Impression Obsession using black memento ink which you can find in Laura's store here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_331/Impression-Obsession-.htm
I colored the Candy Cane using Prismacolor Pencils and added green, yellow, red and used green highlight glitter on the white areas of the candy cane to coincide with colored pencil areas. For the background behind the candy cane I used Seabreeze transparent glitter. I cut out 4 corners using Marianne Creatables die called 'Anja Rose Small Corner using red glossy metallic paper. I then added green and yellow seam binding ribbon along with a bow.
