The picture has a gold surround, as does the Compliments of the Season sentiment (dfficult to see here). The base card is textured and the paper behind the image was a magazine freebie.

Candy canes

'Candy canes' is the theme for this week's challenge 48 on Sparkle creation Christmas 2010.

I've used DCWV papers and chipboard with a black bow. There are no embellishments on the first one - the papers speak for themselves - so this is good for today's 'no embellishments' Town scrapper challenge.

Sorry about the wonkiness of the scan! (the card is straight).
