Candy Cand Hugs

 It's time for an inspiration post to remind you of the Anything Goes Challenge at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenges, and the "Christmas In July" Sale going on this month where there are OVER 36 stamp sets on sale in her store!

Here is my inspiration creation!  For this card I used the Candy Cane Basket set:

As you can tell, I used the basket on the bottom (uncolored - you get both colored and uncolored when you buy the set) and the 'Sending Candy Cane Hugs' sentiment.   I added 3 large glitter brads, gems, ribbon, a fun robin and a gingerbread man button (on the bottom).    I used the Cricut to cut the leaves and to fussy cut the basket.

I hope you come and join in the challenge and also take advantage of the sale!!
