We are here today for the
Perfect Paper Crafting/The Craft's Meow Blog Hop!!
We will be using the Amazing Products from both of these Companies to Inspire you for your Paper Crafting needs!! You should have came from the Awesome Wendy Ramlakhans Blog!!
I used the Perfect Squares Tool and the Holiday Poinsettia, Jar of Sunshine and the Potted Garden Stamp Sets for my card today!! I wanted to create a Holiday Birthday Card with a Chalkboard feel!! So here is what I came up with!!

Holiday Poinsettia
Jar of Sunshine   Potted Garden



For the Jar I wanted a Metallic Gold Jar!! I was inspired by some Jar Images I have seen on Pinterest!! I used my Faber-Castell Aquarelle Water Color Pencil in Metallic Gold and then added some Versa Mark and Clear Embossing Powder!! I embossed my jar image with a Black Embossing Powder and then colored my jar label and White Embossed the Sentiment and added it to the jar with some foam tape!! I stamped and Embossed the Poinsettia Image two times using Gold Embossing Powder and then I took my  Faber-Castell Aquarelle Water Color Pencils in two shades of pink and added some shading to make it more dimensional!! I cut out the whole flower and then just the top layer for my layering layer and used some foam tape to pop it up!! I used a Vintage Button for the center and added it to the Jar!! I added some May Arts Burlap Twine and a Sweet Little Tag and xoxo Sentiment to finish of the Jar and I LOVE how it came together!! I used the Perfect Square Tool for my card base and for the different layers and it sure made FAST Work out of the design with all the different sizes of the layers!! I added some Dry Distress Glitter for a FUN Snow bank and to the Be Merry to finish my card off!!

I love the dimension, layering the flowers like you did, gave to the whole card. Your jar came out great and I like the chalk feel. The tool did a great job with the layers. Great job!
