Jars of Joy

Cath has a fun challenge going over at the Moxie Fab World, called "Jars of Joy".  I have always loved Mason jars - we've used them for years as our glasses, and I've stored buttons, pencils and old spools of thread in them.  I even have a lamp made from a big jar,  and I've devoted a Pinterest board to the subject.. I've loved seeing cards using them starting to pop up everywhere, too -   Here's my card:

MFW Jars of Joy challenge

supplies: white cardstock, denim design paper, vellum, Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar and Friendship Jar Filler and tiny tags die, Hero Arts CL304 A Million Thanks (daisies), VersaFine onyx black ink, Hero Arts butter bar mid-tone ink, Memento Dandelion and New Sprout markers, Spare Parts lace, white twine

The stems and leaves are from PTI's Spring Jar Filler - they are actually tulips.  I stamped 8 of the Hero Arts daisy heads and covered the tulips up with them, leaving only the stems and leaves from the original.  I also added a piece of vellum to the jar to make it look more opaque.

  3. I love when you use blue and yellow! That lace is the perfect element for your jar to sit on. Love all the daisies, but that one at the bottom of the jar is my fave! Every detail is wonderful, Lin!
