A Stocking Built for Two

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge has not one, not two but four fabulous sketches for you to choose from, You have until December 26th to get in on the fun, so click on the link to go have a better look, but wait until you read my whole post and check out my card. There is also a December challenge at Seriously Creative Challenge Blog and it’s great All Things Christmas and it was a big decision on which card to use for it. I’m hoping to slip in another one before the  month is out. So both challenge blogs have all of December to create for.
I used my favourite little guys again, it’s Amanda and Maxwell all bundled up in a sock. I used my plain oval Spellbinder die and my lacy scallop one too. My colours are Real Red and some dp from a Christmas stack I bought a couple of years ago on boxing day, it even has it’s own bling on it. The image was coloured with prismas and oms the real red ribbon is from Stampin’up. I also used one of my Fancy Labels Spellbinder dies for the sentiment.
