"Pretty Jar of Daisies" Card

Hello All!

Awhile back I bought an adorable set of stamps illustrated by: Laurie Wilson, called "Every Day Jar-gon" from Clear Dollar Stamps but had not had a chance to use it. I made the time today, and I think the card turned out kind of nice. There are so many different stamps with the set, I thought I would post a picture for you to see.

I can't wait to make some other cards with this set. It is so versatile!

I used heavy clear embossing powder on the jar and held it in a curve as it cooled, making it look rounded. I also stamped out extra daisies and popped some of them several times. I took a couple of close-ups so you can see the details. Remember, you can click on the pictures to enlarge. I about went cross-eyed before I finished cutting out all of the tiny daisies! LOL!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
