Day Dreaming

I'm Day Dreaming again......hurray!  I don't always have time to get on the computer and play with my sweet Daydream Designs images, but I sure do enjoy myself when I do.  This card was made with the super sweet new Preserving Sweetness Set.  I used the Strawberry Preserves and the coordinating Strawberry Sweetness Plaid Patterned Paper.  I also threw in a few chipboard elements from Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird collection because they matched so nicely.
I added some green jute which I tied around the jar, and I also placed some tiny gem stickers in the centers of the chipboard flowers.  There are a couple different snippets of ribbon stapled to the side, and of course I machine stitched the card (as I most always do).
I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - Week #327 Sponsored by Simon Says Stamp
Our Daily Bread Designs - Challenge #213 - Stitch It - This is my third entry and doesn't use any ODBD products, but my other two entries do use their products.  I always LOVE stitching on my cards!
Have a blessed day, and thanks so much for stopping by to say hello.
