Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #81

 For my Midnight Madness Design card for this week, I used this adorable Christmas Stocking  image by "priscillastyles".  My stocking image was colored with my inktense watercolor pencils.  Shading  around my image was achieved by sponging on Tim Holtz distressed inks.  Ribbons were from my stash.  My card stocks are by Mindseye Christmas collection as well as my solid card stocks are by Paper Temptress. 
This weeks sketch...it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.

Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)
