DCM weekly dare - candy stripes

This week at
It was ourSaffa who set the dare!
I love the stripey candy sticks that are around at this time of year so inspired by this I challenge you all to create a card featuring stripes of some kind, the occasion is up to you but you must use some form of stripes on your card. Maybe stamps, or paper, or ribbon...

So maybe I took Saffa's dare a little bit too literally
But my kids love it :)
and all want me to give it to them for Christmas, lol!
Make sure you pop on over to the main dare blog
to see what the other DT have come up with for this
SWEET DARE ;o)
So have you dared to DARE yet?
Come on I dare you!
EDIT 8th Dec 8:49am
thankyou all for your lovely comments,
I just wanted to add, that the Candy Cane isn't an original idea of mine
I've seen it used before like this, only I used a real candy cane :)
