Inexpensive Stockings

Another challenge starts over at Squigglefly today and our theme this time is to use Die Cuts or Embossing.  The image I'm using is a new release called 5 Cent Stockings by Sandra Caldwell and can be found in the Squigglefly shop.

The stockings have been printed out twice, popped up on dimensionals, and colored with Copics.  This was mounted on some Christmas-y patterned paper with the ribbon and die cut (from Impression Obsession) added.  A sequin and red gem were added to the center of the snowflake.

Be sure and head on over to the Squigglefly challenge and enter for your chance to win a wonderful prize package.  Anyone can play along but to be eligible for the prize you must use a Squigglefly image.

Thanks for stopping by...........
Lynn

Gorgeous card, Lynn! Love this image and sentiment and your beautiful paper! I see you have word verification on - have you had trouble with spam? I had a whole bunch of it the other day myself but seemed to have nipped it in the bud. I didn't bother with the word verification and hopefully I won't have to. I think your Squigglefly DT is a good gig - they have some gorgeous images over there - and so many to choose from!
