Socks 'n' Stripes

Christmas is just around the corner which automatically makes me think 'Socks' and the stripier the socks the better! Which brings me to this weeks challenge hosted by teamie Corrie at Stampotique, Corrie says:
"Hello everybody !
Today is my turn to set the challenge at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge Blog and I'd like everyone to make something with a stripy background. You can use ink, paint or pens whatever you like, just no ready made stripes with pattern paper !! I want you to do it yourself ! I am excited to see what you come up with but most of all I want you to have fun !! Corrie x"
I used a scrap piece of cardboard and tore off the outside bit to reveal the bumpy inside, this is great to work with as it adds detail and depth, a bit of ribbon and some wonderful stamps and I created this ATC.
The stamps I used are:
Agatha Christmas for the hat
I do hope you like it and find time to join in the challenge :)
Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx
