Stitched Stockings

I love the stitched stocking stamp set and coordinating punch. At first glance, it seems like it is soo limited to just stockings...but leave it to crafters to get creative with how they use their tools!! So awesome. I have seen it used as a hobby horse, baby booties, and even two together can make it into a sweater!! Gotta have tools that have more than one purpose...as long as it has more than one purpose, we can buy it....right?? ha ha ha
So, in keeping with my christmas theme...I have my PPA112 challenge entry!! It is an elements of style challenge today and the element is Lace! well...I think I can do that...pair lace with some vintage christmas colours and you've got yourself a beautiful christmas card!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso.
Ink: Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Versamark.
Markers: Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke.
Punches: Stocking Builder Punch, Eyelet Border, Scallop Edge Border.
Stamps: Many Merry Messages, Stitched Stockings, Winter post.
Embellishements: Antique Brads, Victoria 5/8" Ribbon, Clear Embossing Powder.
Misc Tools: Sponges, Piercer tool, Sticky Strip, Heat Tool, Simply Scored, SNAIL, Stampin Dimensionals.

So, that is my challenge entry...I really like this card, but if I were to do it again, I would put a few more layers in the border area and probably use some DSP also. That being said, I like how it turned out and and I'm going to be proud to give that to a family member for christmas!
