Easter Bouquet - Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers

   Spring must be on it's way as I weeded part of my yard this weekend and did some general cleaning up in my flower beds.  A few crocus are blooming and the daffodils are budded out and ready to go.  Definitely time to break out all the flower stamp sets and get busy.

  I used the neglected Jar of Flowers set to play along with The Card Concept challenge.  They've got a fun Luck of the Irish inspired flower arrangement as the inspiration photo.  I decided to do a clean and layered card using the colors.  I don't send out St. Patrick's Day cards so I added an Easter sentiment instead.

  The card base is Soft Sea Foam and then a layer of the same embossed with the Tin Tile embossing folder.  I had a piece of In Good Taste DSP in the wood grain pattern that was just the right size for the card front.  I added a bit of Garden Green to the edges for some definition.

  The jar is punched out of Berry Delightful DSP in a nice green plaid pattern.  The flowers are stamped in Memento and then lightly colored with Blends.  I left them mostly white with a bit of yellow and then the stems and leaves in greens.  I popped the jar and flowers on dimensionals after adding a narrow black ribbon and bow around the middle.

  The sentiment from Arrange a Wreath is stamped in Garden Green and then die cut with the Tasteful Label dies and is also popped on dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
