Sweet Spirals with The Lollipop Ladies

You may remember the Chupa Chups-themed card I made last month, inspired by a challenge at The Lollipop Ladies; Well, I won a GDT spot for their 6oth Challenge! The theme is Candy Canes with the extra challenge of Spirals.

I made a "vintage" Telescoping Card, using some beautiful Graphic 45 papers:

I distressed on the pieces with Vintage Photo distress ink, and coated all the pieces with Creative Medium for a vintage texture. I pulled all the candy-cane-themed paper from my mom's Christmas stash (yeah, I had lots of crafting fun during my visit!) and realized later that it was all (with one possible exception) Graphic 45 brand! 

I added red Stickles and cream Liquid Pearls.
