Christmas Favorites

Happy hump day!! Heres my card for todays sketch challenge. As soon as I seen the sketch I knew I wanted to use the curvy label nestabilities. Mama just got these and I took them from her to play with while she was gone shes expecting them back tommorrow (insert evil grin here!). I usually dont view the gallery until AFTER Ive made my card for many reasons. Usually if I see someone else has used an idea I was thinking of I will go a different direction or I end up casing someone not really meaning too. KWIM?!?! Well I decided to peek at the gallery today and saw quite a few cards using this curvy label punch but I was determined to use it anyway! I also used some of my new goodies from Jacksonbelle (wassail dp and ribbon).

I pulled out my Treehouse stamps Christmas favorites set. I noticed this stocking was uninked and I couldnt have that!LOL! Im really glad I did! This is such a cute image and I love it with the Basic Grey wassail dp. I stamped the stocking twice onto Pti white and colored using gamsol magic. I cut out the heel, toe, and top of the stocking and popped up for paper tole. I also used some of my new Coordinations cs on my card! LOVE it!! This card almost ended up in the trash a couple of times but Im glad I stuck with it! Im pretty happy with it now! Have a great night!!
