I am linking up once again at Stephanie's Roses of Inpsiration . This card just happened to go to Stephanie who just celebrated her birthday last week.  I wish I would have taken a side view of it now, I made it, took a couple of pictures and then got it out in the mail so I never in looked at the pictures I took before I mailed it out.  This is a side step card, the left side sets back a little farther than the right side. I used my silhoutte to cut out the base of the card.

I paper pieced the mason jar, stamped the lid on a different piece of paper from that pack. The flowers were also stamped on another piece of paper from this paper set and I fussy cut them all out. The stems of the flowers were stamped directly onto the paper.  I added a little bit of ink to the doily under the jar, to antique it a little bit, was just too white for me :)

Silhoutte Cameo -- Card base
Rasberry Road design -- paper
Recollection -- stamp set (sorry no name on the set but it was purchased at Michaels)
Spellbinders -- Delicate doiles die
Stickles -- Scattered straw (flower centers)
Recollections -- Pearl (on tag)

You can head over to Stephanie's blog and check out the rest of the links and scroll down to the next post to see how she spent her birthday :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by, I really love hearing from you,

Hello, my friend! This card does indeed look familiar since I found it waiting in my Post Office box yesterday :) This card is so beautiful, Connie! Your creations are pretty online, but seeing them in person is even better - I can see the detail and love you put into the cards you make.

You are a precious friend and I am thankful for you. Thank you for sharing this lovely card with Roses of Inspiration. Enjoy your week! Hugs!
