CSS Inspiration Blog Hop

It is time for another Stamp TV CSS Blog Hop. So while the turkey leftovers wait to be consumed and the Christmas shopping season has officially begun, grab a cup of pumpkin spice coffee and enjoy the cards from the CSS team members. You won't be disappointed. This time the blog hop is an inspiration challenge from the photo below:


And this is the card I made.


You should have arrived from Melissa Schultz blog and I am quite certain that she shared another incredible creation. If you want to start at the beginning just head on over to the home page of StampTV.

For my card I decided to go with the colors from the photo and I also thought that the jar from Melanie's Buds and Vases stamp set would go very nicely.   The card base is Pure Luxury White and I also used Gina K Pure Luxury Red Hot and used a Cuttlebug folder to create the circle background. I stamped the jar on the white and cut it out. I "filled" the jar with some buttons. I used a half of a doily that I purchased from an Etsy shop added some ribbon and a brad. The  flower in the corner was just something I had picked up once. The colors are very much like the photo. 


Now hop on over to visit Peggy Wainman for what I am sure will be another amazing card. I sure am glad you stopped by and for leaving a comment! See you again soon.

I love this card!!! It reminds me of both of my grandmothers, who both kept button jars/tins, and were big on doilies everywhere. Thanks so much for bringing those memories back!
