Sticky and Sweet

Today I have a bunch of Christmas cards I made for the latest Jingle Belles challenge -  Stick-y Sweet - to create a holiday card with at least one sticker.

Well ........  I made them over the weekend -  but had a busy beginning of the week and didn't get them posted in time to enter the challenge! Somehow I was thinking I had plenty of time but the deadline was yesterday! - whoops!  So...... anyway...... here they are!
 For the sticker requirement I used these fun layered paper stickers from K & Company that I actually won from the Jingle Belle ladies last January in a big package of goodies seen below.  (See the package of stickers in the middle left?)
So - first I stamped a flourish from Waltzingmouse on my card base - then I placed the sticker over the flourish - placing each one a little differently to please my eye.  The stickers come with a large version and a small version -  here are the ornaments:
and here are the bows with holly
the poinsettia sticker came in only one size but I still made two cards to make an even 6 cards for my stash!
So - I made some pretty little cards (4 1/4" x 4 1/4")  using a simple flourish stamp, a sticker and a sentiment!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Flourishes-Scallops and Dots, Sentiment from  Nutcracker Sweet
Paper:  White - PTI
Ink:  Memento Cottage Ivy, Ranger Distress Festive Berries
Accessories:  Layered Accents Visions of Christmas - K & Company

I really like this set of cards - the stickers are just lovely and I do like the flourish behind them! Great work.

I lost time this week and missed this challenge too!
