Merry Monday #145...Candy Canes!

Welcome to the Merry Monday Challenge #145!  I want to start off this post by thanking Lori for liking my card.  I was so surprised!  I am thrilled to be able to play along with the DT on today's challenge.  This week we want you to to have fun creating a Christmas card with candy canes.  

When I saw this classy picture, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.    Here's my take on today's challenge:

I was inspired by the snowy looking limbs and red berries. The bead board in the background inspired the green striped background.  

Be sure to stop by Merry Monday and take a look at the wonderful inspiration provided by the design team.  

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today.  Hope your week is full of blessings!
