Candy Cane in the Snow

I created a Christmas themed look as I felt the spirit in the air, it's that or the Christmas carols are seeping into my brain. I wanted to do a sparkly but not too kitschy representation of a Candy Cane and incorporate snow for an excuse to use glitter and to go with the red and white motif.
