25 Days of Christmas Tags - Stocking

I have one more tag to share for Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event.

When I saw Tracey's own tag on day 25, I immediately thought of the stocking image that I had printed out ages ago and still had not coloured. Since I didn't want to cut the image in half to fit on a tag, I decided to create a mega tag to fit the image, which suited me just fine, since it allows me to send it as a Christmas card. I coloured the image (I could not find the original on my computer just now, so I will need to check later whose artwork this is - update: found it; Long stocking by From the Heart Stamps) using SN alcohol markers after drawing the lines on the stocking to mimick the pattern on Tracey's image. I cut my tag from a few scraps of red cardstock and layered a piece of zigzag patterned vellum (Papertrey Ink) on top. I printed the 2 sentiments (SSS) onto a scrap of cardstock that I had coloured with my lightest blue marker and adhered them using foam tape. I finished off using a piece of ribbon and fibre from my stash.

I'm also entering my tag/card into the following challenges:
52CCT - Pick a previous 2015 challenge 
(Colour combo #43 Red + white + anything but green)
ATSM - 173 Holiday
Beccy's Place - Anything goes
