Skipping Stones Sketch #107

Hello there!

Happy Tuesday!  Welcome to another sketchy Tuesday with Skipping Stones Design.  Here is my card for this week using Skipping Stones and some fabulous goodies from Canvas Corp:

I was going for an elegant interpretation of that line from Twas the Night Before Christmas- you know they one about the stockings being hung by the chimney with care. Except I hung my stocking by twine on cardstock..... same idea though....

The stocking was die-cut from some Canvas Corp burlap and here's a bit of a tip- after you die cut your shape, and you may need to employ use of some sharp scissors, die-cut the same shape from cardstock and glue the burlap to the die-cut so the burlap doesn't come unwoven. I topped the stocking with a bit of felt as a finishing touch.   The pretty damask paper is also from Canvas Corp and pretty much inspired the design. 

Want take a minute for yourself this crazy week and give this sketch a whirl?

Upload your take to the SSD blog and you could win a free Skipping Stones set of your choice!  Be sure to stop by the blogs of the other DT gals and guests and check out more crafty goodness based on this sketch.
