Birthday Spring Flower Jar

I have a friend celebrating her birthday today, and I thought she needed a fun springy card to help her celebrate!  The colors on here make me happy, and hopefully they will do the same for her.

To make my spring jar, I used the My Creative Time Stitched Chunky Jar Dies, cutting the jar in white, the "fabric" in a polka dot pattern from Simple Stories SN@P Color Vibe, and the lid out of silver paper from The Paper Company.  To make the "grass", I took a scrap of green patterned paper and used the ekSuccess Bumpy Road Edger Punch on it.  Then I ran it through my Vagabond with the jar die to make it the right size with the stitching.

The flowers and stems were made with Papertrey Ink's Polka Dot Parade #2 stamps and dies.  I used the MCT Stitched Oval Die to make a hot pink placemat for the jar.

My sentiment is from PTI's Stylish Sentiments:  Birthday stamp set.
