Happy Tuesday Friends!! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!!  Today I have a fun card to share with you using the sketch from the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.  The sketch is flipped.

The background is created using the Beleek Inspired Technique (brayer an embossing folder on one side and then dry emboss).  The images are colored with copics.  The jars are cut and embossed using the Canning Jars Dies.  The flowers are using the Be Joyful stamp set.  The butterflies are a piece of one of the corners in the Birds Borders and corners Stamp set.

Here is a copy of the sketch:

A little behind in leaving a message on these beauties. That first one is especially nice with the sweet pink flowers peeking out of the jar. Nicely laid out and one of my fave scriptures. Hugs c
