Amy, great great great use of the mat stack die & stamp!! The stocking looks like it was always meant to go like that! And you used my favorite background stamp to boot (ha--pun intended!). Super terrific card! Thanks so very much for playing along with my Christmas in July challenge, Amy! I am so happy to have you!!

What a neat idea!! love it Amy, excellent job, the stocking is prefect and I just love how u layered a dark circle over the mat stack, that made the stocking really pop!
