Viva la Verve Returns August Sketch Challenge

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
Happy Friday!
I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!
So as I was making my bloggy visits I came across a post stating that Julee has started the Viva la Verve challenges back up. Super happy about this and I get to use some of my new crafty goodies from Verve Stamps. Yiippee!

Here is my take on the sketch:
For my card, I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies from GMD and the "Festive Wishes" paper pack. 
For the border I used sparkly turquoise washi tape, which I found in my crafty stash. Yippee!
The stockings & sentiment are from the Jolly Jingles stamp set and I also used the Winter Friends die set. Both are from Verve Stamps. The stockings were colored using Spectrum Noir Markers. I used the Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool to stamp "the stockings were hung" sentiment on a circle die cut and the Floral Doily Motifs die (pink) from Spellbinders. To complete my card, I added a Totally Red Trendy Twine bow and rhinestones for extra sparkle. I also used this same sketch to join in on other challenges as well.

I used a gold jelly roll pen on the bells and glitter glue (white) for some sparkle.

Here is a closer view of the pretty bow using the Totally Red Trendy Twine.

Other Supplies:
Recollections Cardstock
Bunch of Fun Circle Dies: My Creative Time
Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue
