Spread a Little Happiness-WMS!!

Here's my card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Designed by The Claire Brennan {Head Moustress}.























Inked up the jar from Candy Jar Xmas Fillers and added a topper and sentiments from Jar Fillers-Jam Packed. Stamped a pattern from Heirloom Patterns in SU So Saffron onto white. Added Ribbon Carousel seam binding with a bow/button/twine combo. Used cheesecloth for the upper right corner {instead of a tag} and a little in the lower left. Monika Davis at MAD Stamper has been using cheesecloth... HAD to have some and try it out!!! Purchased mine on Ebay and just finally made a card I thought it would work with!! I realize I am in love with these nesties... will change it up soon...promise!!

Wonderful sketch












Now.... have you ever made a card you were happy with... but, hadn't finished.... tooooo much time to think if you wanted to add a little "sumthin sumthin"... and then, you did... wished you hadn't...and don't have enough of that perfect paper to start again?? Grrrr.....

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate when you stop by and all the kind words!!

Lvoe this, Vickie! The wood panel paper is perfect with the preserve jar! Well done using the cheesecloth too :) They need to make you a part of their DT as far as I'm concerned! Hope your week has been better ((hugs))

Love the cheesecloth addition...nice touch of texture and hadn't thought of using that before! Yep...been there...done that with adding something with extra sticky adhesive then wishing I could remove it and can't! :-(

The cheesecloth really works so well with the mason jar, Vickie. I think I might have to pick some up at the fabric store soon. Great idea! Such a lovely card, especially with the wood pattern paper. It really pops!

The jam jar looks great against that background paper Vickie - all the colours match perfectly and I love the cheesecloth peeping out!
