Christmas Stockings with the Winter Wonderland Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today sees the next challenge at the  


Where Team Icicles are in the hot seat, with the very talented Sally hosting with the theme of

Christmas Stockings
we would like to see Christmas Creations showing stockings

We have two wonderful sponsors this week
who are offering the winner a £10 voucher

and

who are offering the winners choice of 4 of their amazing images

So here is my take on the theme but don't forget to hop over to the main challenge blog to check out the wonderful inspiration their for you.

I am trying to use up some of my card blanks from those kits you get bought :)
The base card is cream, I have added a layer of gold mirror card, then a layer of white card which has been run through the cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I also ran the gold frame for the image plate through the same folder.  Ribbon, pearls and little red bell charms from stash.

Here is a couple of close ups of the image, one is to show you the whole image and the second to show you a close up of the glossy accents added to the candy canes, so difficult to photograph the shine, but think I managed it.

The image is from an unmounted sets by Joanna Sheen

As always I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for their inspiring comments, which encourage me and allow me to hop over in return to see their gorgeous work and welcome my new followers.
