Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge

It's Tuesday and that means MIDNIGHT MADNESS SKETCH CHALLENGE time!!  And today, we also have a BONUS for you!  My creation today fits somewhere between the CAS sketch and the FANCY sketch!  
 (click on image to enlarge)
I have used various holiday designer papers and my image is from Crafty Secrets Christmas Creative Scraps and gem swirls from Zva Creations. 

Here's the BONUS!  Priscilla has this adorable Christmas Stocking now available in her store and for amazing inspiration from the "priscillastyles" DT using this image ... scroll down below the MMSC76 post .  Here's my entire card and I just LOVE it!!
 I chose to use traditional holiday colors with this image because the image itself reminds me of the Christmas stockings we had when I was a child and how the "goodies" popped out of the top. 

Please be sure to pop over and see all the AMAZING inspiration on the Midnight Madness site!!  Not only are their sketches TOP OF THE LINE but the creations made by this DT are TOTALLY TOP NOTCH!  If your mojo is lacking ... this is where you can go for inspiration!!!

I'll be back later with my creation for the Crafty Secrets Challenge over on SCS.  We are still celebrating October's Breast Cancer Awareness ... you won't want to miss it!!
