Good Morning! Today's card is for the monthly challenge for the blog group that I belong to. If you look on my side bar you will find the links to the other ladies' blogs who are in my group. If you have time, take a moment to visit their blogs and you can see their challenge cards too. I must apologize to my blog group friends because I am late in posting my card (I'm so sorry, I totally forgot about our challenge).

Our challenge was 'the power of 3's'.  We were to create a card using 3 layers, 3 images, and 3 embellishments and we were to leave the sentiment off of the front of our cards.  I knew right away that I was going to try and use my new stocking punch. 

Making these stockings using the stocking punch is a great way to use up some of your designer series paper scraps.  On my card I used some paper scraps from the Stampin' Up! holly berry bouquet designer series paper.  I used the new silver glimmer paper for the tops and the toe part of the stocking and the rest of my card was made using real red and very vanilla card stock.

The stockings were easy to put together and I placed them on my card using dimensionals.  My background is dry embossed using my big shot and my perfect polka dots embossing folder.  I used a glue dot to hold on my bells.

My 2 year old daughter just told me that she liked the socks on my card, how cute!  Well, that's about it for today.  If you are watching my Simply Score Tool give away then you know we only need 5 more followers.  This would make a perfect Christmas gift for you!  For more details please click on the simply score tool on my side bar.  Have a great day!
