Stocking full of love

Hi everyone and here's my card for House Mouse and friends where this week the challenge is 'Let it snow'. It's also my DT card as guest designer for the next two weeks which is a really lovely opportunity, I'm so happy to have been chosen for this as House Mouse stamps were amongst the first stamps I bought when I started. The image I've used is 'stocking full of love' and is marker coloured, dotted with a white gel pen and glittered with Cosmic Shimmer glitter jewels which unfortunately haven't shown up in the photograph. Image is matted on blue and then white card and mounted on dimension tape. Background paper is from a Dovecraft christmas pack matted on blue card, the centre horizontal panel is layered with more of this and lifted up on dimension tape with the blue and white ribbons tied around it. Added a vertical CB embossed white card panel, stamped sentiment and gems to finish. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
