Christmas Stockings

Morning folks!
It's my turn to choose the theme over at SPARKLES CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE for this month. I've choosen 


I hope you like my choice and will come over and join us!

Here's the card I made, using a PB stamp that was 'rescued' from Ebay a couple of years ago, coloured with promarkers and pencils.
The papers are a mixture of Forever Friends, First Edition and a magazine freebie from many moons ago. 

How snug does this mousey look? 
It's hard to see in the photo but I have added Doodlebug floss to the stocking ruff and glossy accents to the holly sprig. The gold paper and glittery dots are really quite sparkly in real life.
