Beat the Christmas Rush - February

Here are my four cards for the February BtCR challenge at CCW - I managed to get in a bit earlier this month!
I have matted a Craft Creations paper onto cardstock, rounding the corners of each - I think that's a nice detail when using a scalloped card blank.  I attached the ribbon before adhering to the card.
The baubles are stamped and punched with a Stampin' Up  set, and made 3-D by using three baubles folded in half and stuck together.  I must credit Zoe Pierson for this idea, she taught it at a class at one of the Cardinal Colours retreats a couple of years ago!  A bit fiddly, as there are six baubles to stamp for each card, so that was twenty four altogether.... LOL.
I stamped the sentiment (Stampendous) in the corner and that was it!
