Stylish stockings

Hello all!  How are you?  Fine and dandy, I hope.  Tomorrow is the 4th of July here in the States, and I hope we all have some fun planned to celebrate our independence.  May Old Glory wave high!
I'm here to share my latest Christmas card:
This card did not turn out as originally planned, but since I made it for a challenge, I had to post it, lol!  I embossed both pieces of the stockings with different folders, and added Stickles to the swirls.  The sentiment that is hard to see in my pic is from Signature Christmas from Papertrey Ink.  The wrinkles on my card are from using Elmer's glue to adhere the foam piece to the cardstock...does anyone have any suggestions on what else can be used??
