2.6.14 - Believe in the Magic

Hi there! I finished the card I started last night so I felt compelled to share! LOL!

Here's the inside:

Hey look at that. It's a Christmas card. With stockings. Hmm, looks like I'll be able to enter this for Merry Monday #94 - use a stocking or stockings.

And that design looks familiar. Yep. It's the sketch from Mojo Monday #331:

I'm very happy with how this came out. Mostly because I found stockings in abundance in one of the Christmas collections I have. I used the stickers that came with the paper. I stuck them on scrap paper then fussy cut around them to make them sturdier. Of course, I thought it needed something more, (because there isn't nearly enough layers on this bad boy), so I added a few rhinestones in the corner. Yep. That's much better.

There's still time to play along with both of these challenges, so if you haven't already done so, what are you waiting for? (wink)

I hope that you have a great evening! Thanks for stopping by!
