Double D Challenge - Mason Jars

 Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
 Diane is our host for today's challenge and the theme is:
Mason Jars
(use a mason jar and/or anything you see in the
jar on the mood board)
and here's the inspiration board she has created 
to help get you started . . .


 The prize Diane is offering up this challenge to one lucky player is this awesome
Precious Marieke 'Blooming Summer' stamp set.

 It just so happens that I have this stamp set and the smaller mason jars on my card were created using stamps from this set.  The larger stamped Mason Jar is from a stamp set from The Greetery called 'Just Mason Around'.  As you can tell, I was inspired by the image in the lower right corner today.  I've also used The Greetery 'Shiplap' die set to create my background.

Black/white bakers twine was used as an accent and my sentiment was created using an older Memory Box Classic Alphabet die set.  A few little seashell die cuts were used as embellishments.

Challenges to share in:

Hope to see you at Double D!
