Birthday Wishes in a Jar

Whew, I just did a great workout on the treadmill and it feels so good to sit my butt down ... lol!  My card today uses a digital collage called Vintage Jars.  I created this for my online friend Linda.  She celebrated her birthday a few days ago so here is a jar filled with birthday wishes for her.
After printing off the image and cutting it out I cut off the lid.  Some lace was added to create a doily then I sprinkled Fairy Dust glitter on the lid.  The jar was then popped up onto the background.

Friend was stamped in StazOn Black on a Spellbinders Gold Labels Four Die.  A little ColorBox Chalk Creamy Brown was added to the edges with a few pearls.  A triple loop bow was made from pink seam binding with a cream flower flat back pearl in the center.

An elegant Happy Birthday image was stamped inside finished with a flourish in iridescent ice embossing powder.

Thank you for all your sweet comments.  Have a wonderful evening!
