Stockings were hung

No pressure, but Christmas is just 2 weeks off, you know.
Here's a card using very traditional colors. I took a stamp that is an image of four stockings in a row (pretty sure it's an old Stampendous image) and stamped it repeatedly to create a design for the background.  I used lots of snippets to create red and  green letters. The glittery stocking came from the Dollar Store -- I got a whole  bag of them .... I think they are supposed to be table confetti but there are perfect for cards.  The sentiment is from an Hampton Arts set.

These were perfect for our family's Christmas stockings since we don't have a fireplace! Entering these challenges:
