"Miss Shayla at Christmas Time Stamp Set"

My design team will be choosing the winner, so please check back to see if you have WON!

This is what I created for this months sketch challenge..

For my card I stamped the stocking, candy canes and the sentiment out of my new stamp set "Miss Shayla at Christmas Time" the Designer Paper is from Kaisercraft Mint Twist 6 1/2" Paper Pad.  I used Liquid Applique of the top of my stocking and heated it with a heat gun till it turned puffy, Copic Markers to colour my stocking and candy canes, and garnished it with bells and ribbon (from my stash)  Card base is Craft Cardstock.  I just love how it turned out! Now onto my fabulous team....

Now onto my Design Team!
