Festive Friday #25

Hello and Happy Valentines day!

It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday

Check out the gorgeous inspiration photo! I knew right away that my card would have candy canes on it when I saw this photo. I wanted to stick to only the red and white with a touch of pink also.

and here is what I came up with!

All of my stamps here are from Papertrey Ink. Everything is from the Candy Cane Christmas set except for the sentiment, which is from Snowflake Flurries and the flower, which is from Bells and Boughs. I first stamped the diagonal border with red and moved it slightly over and stamped again with pink. I stamped the candy on a stitched die circle from Lil Inkers, then layered the two pink candy canes and the flower on top with foam tape. 

I hope you will play along with us at Festive Friday!

I hope you all have a happy Valentines day and a wonderful weekend! I am taking my two kiddos out to eat at Applebees for lunch today to celebrate Valentines day :)
