Good morning all.
I have had this card ready to blog since yesterday but here it is finally.

A pic with the tag out.
I cut the stocking twice, once with kraft card which I stuck to the patterned paper and then with brown card .

And a sideways view.
The felt embellie is another bargain find from The Range, 6 of them for a £1.
Thanks so much for popping by.
Hugs Nic
