Merry Stocking - The Challenge #19

Happy Monday!

This morning we have a new challenge for you over at 

Always, at The Challenge --- 
you have a choice!

Choose the Sketch!  Choose the Colors!  OR Choose BOTH!

Check out the rest of the Design Team's projects and leave them some blog luv:

Sheri Gilson (Guest Designer)
Lesley Croghan-Owner/Creator
Nance Salkeld - ME

Then, awe and inspire us with your own project by linking it up with us and playing along!

For my card, below, I used the sketch and the colors and made my second Christmas card for this season!  I'm still not quite in the holiday mood yet.  I'm getting ready to repaint our living/dining room, hall and kitchen along with facelifting an old buffet.  I guess that makes me more in a redecorating mood!  I'm excited for the end result that's been living in my head for months now. Hopefully that end result will be this time next week just in time for Thanksgiving. THEN, I'll be ready to be festive.

STAMPS: Sentiment (Taylored Expressions).
PAPER: White card base.  Cotton candy and raspberry cardstock.  DP-Festive Sparkle (The Paper Studio).
INK: Versamark and silver tinsel emboss powder.
EXTRAS: Stocking die (Taylored Expressions); Banner die (Reverse Confetti); Merry die (Taylored Expressions); Pink flocking powder; pink glitter; pink fuzzy yarn.

Challenge Blessings!

Well yeah, you have to finish the redecorating first :) That sounds perfectly reasonable to me! THis is darling, love the texture with the glitter & braid!
