CCAYR December mid-month inspiration

This is my first design for the mid-month inspiration for Christmas cards all year round 'stockings' challenge - you can find the original challenge here - please click on the links and see the wonderful crafting of the rest of the team and join in with the challenge - the prize this month is two cling mount Christmas images from Platypus Creek Stamps.

This is a simple card made with some Hunkydory background card and a topper with a snug kitty and puppy in their stockings to which I added some glittered Santa hats and a couple of snowflakes with gems.
