It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC95)!  It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have us a challenge host! Mona Pendleton is our challenge host this month! Thanks so much Mona! Mona is challenging us to doilies! You can use actual doilies or create your own with punches or die cuts. The object is to have a doily look! We look forward to seeing what you create!

For my card I am using Flourishes Christmas Classics stamp set.  I found this wonderful inspiration piece from the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge.   It worked out perfectly since I could only find silver doilies at the store.  I thought the silver doily looked sort of like the mirror in the inspiration piece.  I am using the colors from SCS CC299 Old Olive, River Rock, and Real Red!  I am also using the sketch from MojoMonday167.   

Here is a bit of a close up of the glitzy snow stockings.  I used a glue pen to add some touches of sparkle to the top of the stockings and the items in the stocking.  I added more thicker dots of glue for a more snow glittered effect on the stocking.  I also used a diecut red glitter cardstock circle to back the ivory stocking focal circle.   Lately,  I am a bit glitter crazed!  Imagine that!
