Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge- Mason Jar!

It is time for another Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a Guest Designer in an upcoming challenge!

I love the colors and elements of the inspiration picture.  I started with a white card base.  I layered a PTI snow white linen panel for some texture.  In keeping with the school themed elements, I added a text background using BB Inspiration set in harvest gold ink onto a lemon tart panel for added contrast.  I added red flowers using Vintage Linen flowers.  I added some wink of stella to the center of the flowers for little touches of sparkle.  

To create some interest in the stems, I used my MISTI and stamped new leaf and touches of pinefeather that I softened with a sponge.  I then stamped the image again with just new leaf ink.  Gives some depth to the stems and leaves.  I layered two flower stem die cuts together for added dimension and stability.  I opted not to glue the leaves together to give some added interest.  For the sentiment, I  used PTI Sentiment Splits embossed in white to a black fishtail banner.  I finished with a few sequins. 

I am using this week's Freshly Made Sketches sketch.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
