jar of posies

Wow, I can't believe it! 4 posts in 2 days! Life has been busy-been spending lots of time in my gardens. But this 90 degree weather is killing me. But I did have some time this week to play, and here is another card I made for a challenge.
Now, the colors are for the Play Date Cafe Color challenge 144. And the sketch is from Freshly Made. Except it's the wrong week's sketch! It was last week's and I didn't realize it until I was nearly done. Oh, well, I still like the sketch!

The focal element is another one that I had stamped sometime ago and was in the mess on my table. I do not know what the stamp is-I searched all through my stamps and couldn't find it. So it's possible the stamp belonged to one of my craft group and I just stamped up and colored it at one of our meetings. It's stamped in Staz-on black (I did note that on the back of the scrap-should have written the stamp name too!) and colored with Prisma Colored pencils. That much I know. It has been hanging around for quite some time. When I was looking through my papers for something to match the PDC colors this just kept popping up-and it fits the colors, so I used it!
I paired it with some DP from Colorbok (Sorbet-the turquoise) and DCWV Baby boy stack (the yellow and the stripe). I used a Versa Magic Pen and clear embossing powder to make the jar look like glass. I added some yellow Flowersoft to the centers of the daisies. I cut the image out with Spellbinders Long Deckled Rectangles and backed it with a rectangle of Bazzil turquoise. The Sentiment is from Stampendous 'Orchid Greetings' clear stamp set. The tan base is from my scraps, so I don't know what it is. The dragonfly sticker is Jolee's Boutique. I added 3 hotfix rhinestones (imaginesce). Soft and pretty.
