Apple Blossoms for Christmas

Have you seen The Emerald Faeries Challenge Blog new challenge already? If you haven't, go over there and join super easy challenge. This time we want to see flowers.
I made a little match box type box (7.5x12cm) for Christmas goodies (candies, chocolate). I finished it very late on Monday evening (night actually) and didn't had time to wait until stickles was try before I made the photo. I'm sorry, they don't look very nice as wet...

Box base is made of heavy weight water color paper. I love it's texture :) Blue designer paper is from unknown company. It has very lovely tone on tone flourishes on but I decided to make it little more wintery. I stamped some snowflakes on it and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I like this effect.
I used A&T Design digi stamp called Apple Blossoms. It is colored with ProMarkers. As you can see I went stickle-crazy again :) I thought it will add frosty look to the non-Christmas image.

Edit: I upload one more photo from the box. Here you can see it then the sticles are all dry and it is filled with chocolate candies .)
