It was a card, but now it's not!

Hello everyone :)

So, a few weeks ago, I was VERY lucky to win Debbi's huge promarkers candy!  I couldn't believe it to be honest, I was sitting there for a while clicking my name to go to my blog to be sure it did win! lol  I won 2x Sugar Nellie Stamps, 25 ProMarkers, 4 Fineliners!  They all came today.  
As soon as Morgan had his nap I started stamping and colouring.  I WAS making a card, but I have so many candy canes and nothing to do with them, I decided to do this:

I have to say, I really like it.  I'm thinking of giving it to my mum,  I'm sure I will.
I love how, when you take the candy canes out it can be used as a normal card and I love the surprise of the candy canes!!
I wish I had some sort of velcro to stick the card together but I don't, but I have some terrible double sided stick tape that doesn't stick well so i've put that on the image and sentiment and it sticks down and opens good enough!
I finally have glitter too, yay.

I would like to enter this for the following challenges:

Paper Cutz - Snowman or Snowflakes
Crafty Cardmakers - Alternative Christmas
Passion for promarkers  - Anything but a card.  I'm not too sure if this will be counted as a card....  It started out as a card, but now it's a candy cane card holder thing :s
Bizzy Becs   Snowflakes and glitter!
