Christmas Candy - FTTC #97

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC97)! This week Maki Jones is our challenge host! Maki is challenging us to a theme! The theme is all about food and drink! Create a card or project that showcases some yummy treats either real or stamped! We look forward to seeing what delicious looking creations you make!

OMGosh!! It's less than two weeks until Christmas!! How did that happen??? When I was a little girl, we always used to have hard candy for Christmas, and this candy border from Christmas Borders brings back those memories. I know this challenge is about Christmas FOOD, but candy is one of the five main food groups, right? ;-)

I decided to make this a CAS card to really showcase this gorgeous border--plus it should be easy to mail, and I still have to mail out Christmas cards! I stamped the image on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I tied a black button on with some red metallic cord (I'm loving this cord for Christmas cards--less bulky than ribbon). The sentiment is from Flourished Christmas framed with a little paper piercing (haven't done that in a while!).

Now, be sure to go see what my team mates did with this challenge!
