Ok - so I have spent all week in my scraproom organizing and purging stuff and I have so had my creative juices flowing seeing all that I have in my room!  So today - i just could not wait to spend an hour creating this quick card!  I just had to play with my new American Crafts Neapolitan Paper Pad I picked up at Homesense a while ago!

  1. Hand cut the Jar from the patterned Paper. 
  2.  Stamp Sentiment in Black ink and add Word Stickers 
  3. Tie Pink Twine around the jar top 
  4. Glue Wood Heart and Bling in place. 
  5. Mist Doily (let dry) 
  6. Cut the striped piece of patterned paper from the Journal Sheet and trim slightly smaller than the card front. 
  7. Cut yellow cardstock to fit the front of a A2 Card. 
  8. Glue down cardstock 
  9. Glue Doily to striped sheet of patterned paper 
  10. Use a corner round on both the card and the patterned paper
