Birthday in a Jar

Hi-ya friends! I am SO excited to be participating in Papertrey Ink's blog hop today. This is my 1st time to join in the fun and I am thrilled to be here alongside so many crafty friends.

The theme: Scallops.
Be still my heart. My all-time favorite thing on my craft table (aka kitchen table) is the Large Scallop Border die from PTI. I use it all. the. time. Seriously - I'm obsessed, in love, smitten, head-over-heels... you get the idea. I combined it with the Fiskars Apron Lace punch for some cute borders and accents.

On an unrelated note: Do you love the glitter on the jar? Just a little something sparkly to add some sass. ;)
All Supplies are Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Friendship Jar, FJ Fall and Holiday Fillers, Make a Wish (sentiment); Tools: Large Scallop Border die, Fiskars Apron Lace punch, Paper: Kraft, SS White and Berry Sorbet CS, Distressed Dots, It's Official; Sassy Somethings: MemrieMare cabbage rose ribbon (etsy), Pure Poppy buttons, Kaiser Craft rhinestones, Prisma glitter

OMGosh - it's you! Not that you know me or anything. But I used to read your blog all the time and then after you didn't post for such a long time I deleted my bookmark. I was checking out the PTI Scallops challenge, and your project was the first one I clicked on. And here you are. All's right in my bookmarked blog world again.

Very pretty and striking color combo on this card. What really jumped out at me though was that glitter on the jar. I can not wait to try that, never would have thought of it. Very creative idea.
