Cardz TV "Jars, Jams & Jellies" Linky Party

Hello Friends!
 It's been a LONG week for me. But the good news is, the weekend is here and lots to do! Hopefully you will have some crafty time because today we are starting
 another challenge going on over at Cardz TV!
The Challenge: "Jars, Jams & Jellies" Linky Party -
Create a card, layout or altered project using a jar (examples: canning fruits, homemade jellies, canned jams)

Starts: Friday, Sept. 13th
Ends: Thursday, Sept. 26th at Noon

So here is what I made for this challenge:

 I created  a sweet card using some cherries because I had this adorable cherry paper in a paper stack that I had gotten from Hobby Lobby that I've been waiting to use. I used the stamp set "Love in a Jar" by Cardz TV Stamps. The jar, cherries and the sentiment are all from the set. Here is the set so you can see it. It is such a cute stamp set!!!
The card is a standard A2 sized card. Cardstock used is from Recollections. Patterned papers are from the "Olivia's Sweet Shop" paper stack from The Paper Studio. I stamped the jar and colored in the lid with my prisma colored pencils, stamped the cherries in some holiday red ink by CTMH, used my colored pencils to highlight the stems and colored in the jar with my copic B000 to make it look more realistic like glass. I used my glitter pen to add some glitter and sparkle to the cherries and finished off the card by adding some ribbon tied into a knot and a cute flower from my stash. The jar and sentiment are popped up on quarter inch foam squares.
Well my friends, that's my card for today's challenge! You should really stop by the Cardz TV Blog to see all the wonderful projects that my design team sisters have created and link up your own project for a chance to win some awesome Cardz TV Stamps!

I will be back later today with a 2nd post for ya so stay tuned.
