Christmas Stockings.....

Hello everyone: If you think about it and, even if it's only September, Christmas is truly just around the corner so, I made this little card to add to my stash so, when the Holidays are here, all I need to do is write a sweet message, address, stamp and seal the envelopes and send this Merry Messages on their way to family and friends.  Christmas Challenges are great to increase your stash so, I hope you participate often.  Here is my card and I will enter it onto a few challenges at the end of this post.

I stamped this old Flourishes image onto a die cut panel of water color paper and colored it with SU markers and my Wink of Stella, which I filled with water after the glittery stuff had run out so I can still use it, it works perfectly.
I added some glitter to the top of the stockings, hope you can see it better on this picture.

Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card. 

The garland was stamped with the retired SU set called "Bordering Blooms", the sentiment is from my stash and the little gift from another retired Flourishes set.

I'm entering this card onto the following challenges.

ABC Christmas Challenge S is for Sketch, T is for Trio, I chose the Trio of Stockings.

The Merry Christmas Challenge Challenge #33, "Anything Goes + Christmas"
Double D challenge "GLITTER, GLITTER, GLITTER"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can espress.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Oh, Maria, I know! I'm starting to freak out about getting Christmas cards done. I've made a good start, but have a long way to go. This one is sooooo pretty with those colorful stockings and all the sparkle. I love the inside, too, with the garland. It's great to see your card in our Glitter Challenge at Double D! Hugs!
