Here is Sheryl's description of my card......

Karien your card is both stunning and creative!
What a lovely job you did paper piecing the
The blue striped accents on the stocking look
great with the pretty snowflakes.
We love the fun pom-pom fringe! 
And the pretty ribbon and bells, along with the
sparkly snowflakes, certainly do make your
card festive!
Then the pretty white die cut in the background
gives the illusion of swirling snow with
the pretty blue gems you added.
Thanks Sheryl this is much appreciated!
