Christmas Stockings

I've used The Sketch File sketch as inspiration for this design.
I love red and white colors for Christmas and papers with spots, hence my choice of DP to make the panels. I machine stitched around the edges, not too straight, for a rough look.
I used 2 different stamps from Panduro to make the stockings - colored only with a red Promarker. I attached some jute for the string, tied a knot in each end to attach the little metal bells. The Christmas sentiment is stamped.

This card is for these challenges:
1) The Sketch File - Sketch
2) Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge - PPC235 Christmas inspired
3) Ooh La La Creations - Spots & Dots
4) Paper Playtime - Christmas Colors
5) Panduro Hobby - Jul
6) Shelly's Images - Christmas is in the air
7) PaperPlay Challenges - #49 Christmas is coming
8) Pattie's Creations Design Challenge - #58 Christmas card
9) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

I love this card Pia. I am a big fan of red and white cards for Christmas too. I love the way you have attached the stockings and the fabulous stitching too.

Great card. Love the old world feel of the stocking and the rustic llok of the twine combined with the modern look of the design. That design work is a skill I don't have but would like to!
Great job.
