Pink & Green Christmas

Hello friends.  It's Friday so that means it's time for another card featuring the super cute images from The Digi Garden.

Today I chose Emily's Ice Skates.

I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils (although as I look at my coloring here on the computer I am not so impressed  :(  my daughter and I have pink eye and things get a bit blurry right now...).  The colors were inspired by the fun paper stack from K&Co called Secret Santa.  I added green glitter to her pompom and the dots on her scarf.

I decided to mount the image on a stocking shape.  And of course, me being me, I decided a paper stocking wasn't good enough, it needed to be felt.  So, I broke into my felt stash (yes I have many many different stashes) and made a real stocking.  The top even opens so you can add a gift card or other small gift.  I added a green "cuff" and some pompom fringe to the top.  I also sewed some buttons to the corners of the card.
On the inside I added a paper stocking for the writing panel.

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too - Use Your Stash
Stampin' for the Weekend - All Stitched Up
Crafty Catz - Let's Have Sparkle
C.R.A.F.T. - Use Fabric

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek.

Blessings & Hugs,
