Stocking Surprise

Today's card is one I made for J & C Creations. I bought Tim Holtz's 'Mini Tattered Leaves' die at my last visit to the J & C warehouse and kept thinking they would look good on a Christmas card, so here is one! I have had this paper for ever, I can't even remember where I got it, but it's the first time that I have used the stamp and Spellbinders tag which I also bought at J & C.
