Secret Santa! Who will you get?

Starting Christmas projects a bit early! This is for the latest Bitten By the Bug challenge. We were asked to use the stocking from the Christmas Cheer cart (pg 95 of the manual or pg 36 from the online PDF manual). BUT we were not allowed to use the traditional red on the bottom part of the stocking. Go over and check out the other creations by the talented ladies on this design team!

Here's mine...













Recipe:
-CS: The Paper Company "Metallic Blue Steel"
-DPs: DCWV The Glitter Christmas Stack and The Christmas Glitter Matstack
-Fluid Chalk Inks: Colorbox French Blue
-Ribbon: Offray "Kendra Blue Mist/Opal", Dashes, Dots & Checks "Pink/Mauve" and "Blue & White Dots", Sweet Petites "Teastain Gingham" and Unknown "Satin Light Blue w/white Dots"
-Cricut Carts: Christmas Cheer for the stocking using the CDS and the snowflakes cut at 1". Cuttin Up for "Secret Santa", "Who will you get?" and names cut at 1". TBBM for the tags cut at 4" using the Mirror feature. AE for the Scallop frame using the CDS.
-Misc: MM Rhinestone Brads, Michaels Self-Adhesive Pearls, Sakura Gelly Roll White Pen, Mini Pop Dots, adhesive.

TFL!
