Christmas Stocking

There is a new Progressive Challenge at Outlawz  and both Sandi and Anne have provided us with some lovely Traditional Christmas images for Round 1, thank you ladies. You have to make only one card to progress onto the next round

My 1st card is using the Stocking image by Sandi and I have coloured it in using Pro/Flexmarkers adding some small gems to the centre of the poinsettias and some glitter to the stocking top.
I used a gold card base from a Let’s Make Cards pack. The text paper is from DCVW, the holly paper is Dovecraft and they are both offcuts. I used a Nestabilities die for the mat adding small dots of stickles glue in the corners.

The sentiment is by Squigglefly, cut with another Nestie die and I added some fabric leaves and gems to make holly corners.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – A6
Image – Stocking by Sandi Huggett
Sentimrnt - Squigglefly
Paper – DCWV & Dovecraft
Embellishments – Stickles Glitter Glue, small gems DCWV, Fabric leaves
Tools – Nestabilitie Dies, Promarkers, Flexmarkers,Fiskars punch, glossy accents
Techniques – Punching, die cutting, embossing

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges 
(in Alphabetical Order):-
