Hi everyone, isn't that inspiration picture just too sweet? I wanted to keep with the "country feel" so I pulled out one of my favorite Paper Smooches sets called "Crystal Clear". It also has several matching die sets to cut out a lot of the images.

 I stamped and die cut a little mason jar then "dry fit" it to a white panel and stamped my flowers (from DeNami - Elegant Spring Flowers) then colored them in. I removed the jar and stamped my sentiment (also by DeNami - sending you love). I then took my panel and ran it through a swiss dot dry embossing folder and adhered it to my card base with foam tape. I wanted the jar to have dimension too so I attached it with foam tape also after adding a piece of twine around the "rim" of the jar. I thought it needed just a touch of something else so I tilted the lid up against the jar and added a sprinkle of sequins in the upper corner to balance to the whole card. 

 The Shabby Girls are pleased to welcome our sponsor -  Dies R Us!
