Stockings were hung on the mantel

 challenge 51

I was looking at the inspiration picture for the Dazzling Diva Challenge, and got the idea to use the stocking hung on the mantel for my inspiration.  If I made it into a tag, I could enter the Mod Squad Challenge hosted by my friend Karen Hightower.   If I added some stars, it qualifies for the Simon Says Wednesday challenge too.

Easy as one, two, three! 

I started with some gold dotted paper from last year's, Simon Says Christmas kit.  Then made a mantel using only part of the Grand Flower Box die from Poppystamps.  The sentiment is embossed with white, and is from GKD Seasonal Labels.  The stockings were stamped with black Stazon ink onto Gold foil paper and then I added some gold and red stickles to them.  I made a die cut border on the bottom and then added the red stars. 
You can see how this turned out here.
I am entering this tag in these challenges:

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge WE’RE SEEING STARS
I see that my mantel is a little out of line!!!! I will fix that, after all it is handmade, not Hall Mark.
Thanks for dropping in to see what I have done.  Have a great weekend.  I am headed off to visit my son and daughter in law this weekend.  I will be bearing gifts and cookies.  What more could they want?
