Embossed Christmas Stocking

Hello all! So, am I still playing catch up on my 2011 Christmas Cards or am I getting prepared for 2012? I'll let you decide. :o) I had to hurry to get linked in with the i{heart}sketches challenge. I enjoyed playing along last year but didn't get a creation done each month. This year I hope to make the cut!

My Creation
I wanted to share a way to take your cards up a notch (bling always makes things better - right?) The original card on the left is already nice. Lots of layers, embossing, and a spot of bling. I wanted to amp things up a bit so I dug into my Stickles supply and embellished the embossed snowflake design and glittered up portions of the stamped stocking.
