It's Holiday Leftover time at the Jingle Belles

When I saw the challenge for Holiday Leftovers (not the turkey dinner ones) at the Jingle Belles Challenge I knew that I have lots of bits and bobs of off-cuts hanging about. I corralle d a few so for the first of my "leftover" cards I used an A2 background die cut, now this die-cut has been at the cottage for at least two maybe 3 years, I had trouble with getting it out of the die and a few bits were a tad damaged so I set it aside and of course since I'm spending time at the lake it was delegated for my first leftover.

I made an oxide background with several colours , had it really wet so had to wait a while to attach the sparkly die-cut. Not wanting to cover it with images I chose a very large die cut Winter Wishes which I cut two out of 100 pound cardstock layered them and attached flat. 

Close up and you can see the sparkly die-cut.

Finished the inside with an Impression Obsession sentiment and stickers, I used a snowflake sticker and the dotted sticker border, I received a bag of stickers from a friend that can't craft anymore, I have never worked much with stickers but these are fantastic. lots of winter/snowman stickers, there are sentiments which will be used too. 

I'm entering this in:

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great week.
