Flower in a Jar

Good morning, Friends! Wow! Another Monday has rolled around! What a great weekend we had! The soccer team won their game yesterday and that was great as we haven't beat that team until yesterday! Now it's back to the routine of school and practices with a dentist appointment thrown in for good measure - lol! And then September comes. I think I am ready for fall. How about you?

Today's card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. Great simple layout! And I used my new favorite stamp set and colors! Are you tired of see this set? I am hoping to spend some time creating today so I will try to break out a different stamp set. For this card I stamped the jar from Perfectly Preserved in Early Espresso onto a piece of Very Vanilla, then the stem in Lucky Limeade, then the flower in Raspberry Ripple, and then the greeting from Sweet Essentials in Early Espresso. I took a piece of Early Espresso card stock and tore the edge before adhering it to the back of the stamped panel. Then I pierced a circle around the flower image using my paper piercing essentials pack and added two pieces of Orchard Harvest designer paper that were flagged and popped this panel up onto the card. Finally I added a rhinestone to the flower and called it done! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
