Long tall Santa

For this card I've used the sketch for Wild flower Wednesday 23, lengthening it for a DL card:

The base card is a shiny black, covered with DCWV papers. I used one of my favourite Christmas stamps, Santa collage, stamped with versafine onyx black and heat embosssed with black detail. The chipboard candy cane is also DCWV.

Why does the candy cane and the ribbon look red on here when irl it's hot pink?

This is also for:
