Merry Monday Challenges July - Xmas Stockings

Happy Monday Stampers,
Today's post is for the Merry Monday July Sketch Challenge.  We are to use one of the old sketches and reinvent them for the month of July. This week I have used #12, it fitted in nicely with my design. The Silver Christmas Stockings are Stickers that I applied to acetate and then cut out, it gives them a bit more dimension than just sticking them straight onto the card.  You can also add other bits of the stocking detail if you use this process. I used the Adorning Accents Die and Embossing Folder to create my Mantle piece and then added the arrangement, stockings and ribbon for decoration.
This card was awarded the Winner's Badge for Merry Monday's July Challenge.
