Double D Challenge - Flowers in Containers

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and today's theme is:
and here's an inspiration board I've created to help get you started . . .

 I have a stamp set I've been wanting to play with so today was the day!  It's a stamp set by Precious Marieke called Blooming Summer (#PMCS10040)

 Precious Marieke - Blooming Summer - Blooming Summer Stamps
 And, I have used various flower dies to fill my mason jar.  My card is 5x7 in size so I've used a slimline die for my backing panel for the jarred flowers but cut it down on the one end to accommodate my card size.

My sentiment comes from a Stampendous stamp set called 'Friendly Phrases'.
 So be sure to pop over to the Double D Challenge Blog to see all the details and amazing samples offered up by our VERY TALENTED design team ladies!!

Ooops almost forgot to mention the prize that you'll be playing for ... check out this fun stamp set!  Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!

 Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hope to see you at Double D!
