Today’s card is for the Make My Monday Challenge.  It is Fall Floral / Fauna.  You can join in with the challenge by clicking on the link and adding your version of this theme.  Everyone is welcome to join in the fun.


The Jar of Flowers stamp set is one that I have neglected lately.  And it is one that I do Love!  The various uses for the jar are many, but I particularly love the different bouquets that can be added.  For this card I chose the sunflowers.  They seem to be a Fall flower for me.  Plus I love the purple flowers for a bit more Fall look.

To help cover the joining of the flowers to the jar, I added a single, small sunflower.  A second one is added down on the sentiment.  These are from the Hello Harvest stamp set and are simply fussy cut and added with a glue dot.  The one on the sentiment seems to be the perfect embellishment, which surprised me!

Paper and Ink

With knowing I was using Fall colors for the flowers, I wanted to tie in the blue of the jar in the paper choice.  So I went with Bermuda Bay.  The outline of the jar is Bermuda Bay with Pool Party as the inside water.  But the star of this card is the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper.   Not only is it beautiful on it’s own, but it seems to draw the color from the sunflowers also.  And I used a little scrap leftover piece behind the sentiment.  It can be difficult to use pretty DSP for so little to show, but this tiny sentiment really did not put a dent in my leftovers of this great paper.
