More mid-month inspiration for CCAYR

This is my second 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.

Another simple card using a piece of Teresa Collins 'Christmas Home' paper for the background, with the addition of a glittered black and white stocking that was left over from a Kanban kit from quite some years ago, with some Hobbycraft ripple sticker snowflakes.
