Sue, I love both versions. The blue and purple image is stunning. I have a friend that always does her Christmas decor in those two colors and her house looks gorgeous. Your coloring is phenomenal on both. Your glitter backdrop for each of these really enhances the image. Enjoy your day.

Stampendous makes the prettiest images, don't they, Sue? I love that you did both a traditional and non traditional to show how versatile this image is - AND - you successfully did it in your trademark vibrant colors! Sue, I especially like the white highlighting on both candy canes - it really brought them to life! Thank you for showing how to do that! Hope your week is extra special! hugs, de
