Never before.....Stickers!!!!!

Hello everyone: I'm safely sliding at home plate with this card for the "Less is More" Recipe Week challenge, this time is STICKERS. When I saw this challenge I was very excited because I had this beautiful Fall leaves stickers I bought a few years ago just because I couldn't resist the gorgeous colors and images of this leaves but, since I'm always stamping, I put them away and totally forgot about them, that is, until now, when I saw this challenge they immediately popped into my head but the problem was WHERE THE HECK DID I PUT THEM???!!!  I started looking for them every chance I had but, as the dead line for this challenge came closer I just gave up. Then yesterday, I was looking for a box where I had stored some colored sheets of printer paper to try my printer, which is acting up, and when I opened the box, well.....the stickers were just peeking from the side of the pile, how lucky am I? Anywho, here is my card that I'm so happy to share with several other challenges at the end of this post.

The only stamping I did on this card was the sentiment from the "Teeny, Tiny Wishes" from SU and some spots using the retired SU set called "Gorgeous Grunge". I did some score lines on two of the corners just for fun.
Here is a close up of this beautiful stickers. I did fussy cut around the leaves only to eliminate the edge.

Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment and leaf are from a Our Daily Bread set called "Autumn Blessings"
Here is one of the 4 sticker strips I still have, love these leaves.
How can I not buy this beauties?
