Stampin’ Up! Candy Canes Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  I inked up the Candy Canes stamp set in Real Red for a festive Christmas card.  Adding some Green Foil leaves for extra shine and a signature ” Bow”  to finished the card off.  Make sure that stop by all of our creative blog hop team members and see what they created today for the hop.
