CCAYR December Challenge, Christmas Stockings Inspirational Card

Hello Everyone, hope today finds you all well.

Just popping in from CCAYR with my inspirational card for the December Challenge which this time around  has the theme of Christmas Stockings, quite an easy one really, just include a Christmas Stocking somewhere on your card.  Here is my card;
My husband very kindly cut a stocking shape for me, he didn't even draw the shape , just got the scissors and began cutting, he's awfully clever, then I decorated using;
Papermania Christmas in the Country Paper and Velvet Ribbon
LOTV sentiment
SB Bauble Shape and Poinsettia dies
Sizzix Foliage die
Fluffy Stuff from Woodwear
Gems from my box and lots of Sparkle

I hope it offers you inspiration and don't forget to visit
where you will see what fabulous cards the other DTs have made.
I hope you will join in fun with us.
