Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

For my card I am using Verve's Beyond Measure stamp set.  I love the whimsical look of the inspiration photo.  I decided to combine a mixture of pattern papers that I had in my stash to play off the different colors of stocking and bedding.  I stamped and gold embossed the sentiment onto a piece of vellum.  

I felt like the vellum needed a little something so I die cut another piece and wrapped some gold threading around.   I thought the sentiment on vellum added to the white stockings with touches of detail.  I added a red and white bow.  I finished my card with some Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.  I am playing along with this week's MOJOMonday Sketch!

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!

Next on the hop is Charmaine!
