Let me begin by apologizing for the “crinkled” look on my sentiment, I started backing the Cajun Craze with Basic Black and it was too harsh, so I pulled off the sentiment, added it to the Old Olive, satisfied I put it all together and didn’t notice how bad it looked until I started writing this post, (darn iphone 7 and its amazing camera). A little rushed for time I hoped you’d understand if I didn’t redo it. Stampin’ Ups Jar of Love stamp set and matching Everyday Jars Framelets are so much fun to play with. So many great sentiments including “You Fill Me With Happiness”, “Bless Your Heart”, “Life Feels Empty Without You”, and many more. This stamp set and bundle offers endless possibilities to fulfill your card giving needs.

I felt the yellow (Crushed Curry) cardstock was too plain so I used Vera Mark stamp pad to stamp the fireflies on the back ground and added Wink of Stella to the light on the fireflies to make them sparkle.  The flowers are from Stampin Up’s Wild About Flowers, another “must have” if you ask me!
