Just Us Girls #216 - Photo Inspiration

My favorite Just Us Girls challenge is the photo inspiration challenge, and this one is fabulous!  Vicki always manages to find the most amazing photos for these challenges.
Just take a look at this photo!  Isn't it so festive?  So many inspiration possibilities!
I was so inspired by the red stripes, the stockings, the blue, and the polka dots.  The stripes on my card were created using a Wendy Vecchi stripe stencil and Festive Berries Distress Ink.  I just applied the ink with a blending tool and it really came out so clean and crisp.  I die cut the stockings from white cardstock and pattern paper then layered them together.  The tops of the stockings were run through my Xyron machine then I applied Clear Rock Candy Distress glitter on top.  The dots on the bottom are just a strip of the pattern paper, and I stamped the sentiment below.  I added some red crystals for more bling.
I followed this sketch from Clean & Simple Sketches.

I have forgotten the last two weeks to mention our November Guest Designer Nancy Penir.  I am so sorry for Stylibeing so remiss because her last two creations were absolutely fabulous.  Please make sure you check out her blog along with all of the JUGs DT blogs below.
