FF C14 - Element Challenge - Candy Cane

Festive Friday is getting us ready for the Christmas rush with challenges.
This week's challenge is Candy Cane.
How fun is the thought of candy canes in August?
Decided on a shaker card using PTI's Candy Cane Christmas and 
Gingerbread Lane.

The shaker is a cutout created with the Limitless Layers circle die.
Sandwiched inside is a gingerbread house stamped, candy cane style with PTI's BB: Superstripes
Some fussy cutting for a roof and open doorway.
Shaker concoction, Stampendous Shaved Ice and Twinklet's Diamon Dust.
Candy Canes are hung on red twine.
Inside, aqua mist dotty paper, peppermint candies white embossed, from BB: Christmas,
 sentiment from Think Big Favorites #20.
Die cut Loop de Loop and Memory Box 'Joy', and some sequins finish.
