Stocking Surprise!

Happy Friday Everyone!!

Well I guess it's still Thursday for me.  I got home tonight around 9 from my softball games ( I had two).  I came home all energized that I started this card.  Before I knew it, it is 2:30 in the morning.  Ayayay, I hate when I do that.  But when you are in the ZONE, you are in the ZONE!!!! LOL.

So I had never done an all white card before.  One of the challenges I'm submitting this for called for it.  It was a little bit of a challenge, but I definitely enjoyed it.

This cute lit' stocking mouse is from Karen's Doodles.  I used Gypsy Wanderings for the cut just behind him.
Also used Joys of the Season for my snowflake and holly.  My star shaped gems are from Darice. So cute!

I used my Copics to color and stickles for all the white on the stocking and the hat.  My ribbon is from Craft Essentials.

My sentiment is from Hero Arts Stamps. Again used stickles on the edges of the tag. 

Here you can see all the layers I used.  The embossing I made with my Sizzix Christmas texture plates. 


I also want to thank everyone for your sweet comments! I love hearing from you guys.  
Have a great weekend everyone 8)
