Christmas stocking

I'm in the swing with my Christmas cards....because I hate the mad rush in November...although I am late starting this year - so I searched out a few new challenges to play along with...
My first time posting to Christmas at Sweet Stamping and this week the theme is Christmas Stockings.  I also decided to play along with Just Add Ink #267 where they want the use of Typography.  So I stamped my image on a page from a book and pencil coloured it.  Then gathered together some scripty Christmas theme dp and glued these in a crazy pattern on a checked background. I cut the stocking out wonky because I'd stamped it on the edge and then layered it onto a green tag. Finished of the card by mounting the tag with foam tape and hand stitching the edges in black pen.  Thanks for taking a peek
