Little Stitched Stocking

For today's Clean and Simple Challenge at SCS...to make a simple card using the colors soft pink, old olive, kraft and white...with the option of adding Marina Mist.  I substituted PTI's colors Ripe Avocado, Sweet Blush, Ocean Tides, white and kraft...

So glad I played today...these colors are SO much fun for a Christmas card!  Used Waltzingmouse Stamps Sewing Box Christmas.  It's difficult to see but the little pink toes are plaid just like the top of the stocking (used a retired SU plaid stamp).  The background is the Ticking Stripe Backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms.  So sad that they have closed now...they made the best background stamps!  Little twigs are Martha Stewart's branch punch...really, she let me borrow it just for today :).

This is totally cute...love that lil' stockin' (I can almost feel that felt) and you make that tickin' stripe look fabulous. I miss CHF so much, too...Wish someone would have kept it going.

Smugs!
