Have a great day!

Today I'm sharing a card that was a lot fun to make because it was out of my comfort zone.  When I saw the photograph at The Card Concept's latest challenge I couldn't get the glass jar out of my head.

I kept thinking about the beautiful aqua glass jar in the middle.  I wanted to so much to be able use that in a design.  I also wrote down flowers with the list of colors.  And here is what I came up with.

I used an old package to cut the flowers and then inked them with an aqua colored ink.  I wanted something in the background that was patterned without being too perfect.  And here we are.  I think this is along the lines of a clean Shabby Chic.  

Thanks for taking a look.

Stamps: PTI (Handwritten Sentiments), Tim Holtz (background)
