Fab'n'Funky Challenge #273 ~ Recycle

Hi everyone,

We've a new challenge starting today at

Our lovely host Julieanne has chosen the theme "Recycle or Upcycle

I knew just what I wanted to use when I saw this theme.
I had saved some wrappers and bows from last years Christmas crackers.
I cut out a Xmas stocking from the wrapper and added a bow to the top.

I copic coloured a cute image from our fabulous sponsor Bugaboo Stamps.
This cutie is called Poppi Xmas Stocking and is available here.

The little stockings are actually buttons covered with a very soft felt. I found my Tim Holtz
scissors worked great in removing the backs of the buttons so they could lay flat.
Sentiment tag is from LOTV
MS tinsel glitter added to the hat 

So that's another Christmas card made....yeah!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by,

That image is so adorable and I love those tiny stockings. The big stocking is a great addition - made from recycled papers - and the red and white combo looks so Christmassy.
