Stockings in a Row Sketch

Okay, holiday season full steam ahead!  I can't seem to put my Christmas stamps away now!  Lucky for me it's Saturday and time for another sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog

Claire drew up a fancy one this week...now who's up for this challenge?...

 Heee! 

Here is my card:


I tried to cut a fancy top, but couldn't figure out that Nestie trick!  Instead, I cut out panels with a nestie circle to make arches to hang my stockings.  The stocking image is from Sewing Box-Christmas, and the green gingham paper is by A Muse Studio.  Paper-pieced the stocking with those lovely Jillibean Soup patterned papers from the "Homemade 6 Bean Soup" and "Christmas Chowder" Collections. 


The sentiments, and little star and heart are also from Sewing Box-Christmas.



Ready to tackle this sketch?  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, November 11th.  Be sure to include at least 1 Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected player who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Sewing Box-Christmas, Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  Vintage Cream cardstock, Papertrey Ink; Jillibean Soup "Homemade 6 Bean Soup" and "Christmas Chowder" Collections; green gingham paper from A Muse Studio
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa
Other:  Spellbinders Standard Circles Small Nestabilities and Petite Ovals Nestabilities, wooden button from Michaels, red twine by Martha Stewart
