Mother's Day Card - PKS Connection Challenge

Today's Mother's Day Card is inspired from over at the Peachy Keen Connection May Challenge #1 - FLOWERS    

For my 5x7 card I used stamps from the PKS SOTM April 2013 set.   I wanted to do something different with the jar (and if there is someone out there who's already done this I apologize if I haven't seen it).  I first stamped the jar on plain white card stock in black ink.  Then I stamped it again on translucent paper in silver ink.  I cut out the little opening on the translucent paper so that my flower stems could fit through.  Once the stems were place inside the opening I used a glue pen and glued around the white card stock edges only and adhered the translucentt paper, matching up the lines.

The daisy stems are Rick Rack ribbon - my great inspiring friend Cassandra did this and it looked fantastic, I just had to try it.  I paper pieced the center of the daisies and pop dotted them. I wrapped some hemp twine laced with silver around the jar and tied a matching heart button to the jar.  I neglected to take a picture of the inside, I simply stamped Happy Mother's Day from a stamp from my stash.

Well, that's one of two Mother's Day cards.  Not sure what I'm going to do for my second card.  But I better get started.  Mom's Day is just around the corner.  If you'd like to enter your project in the PKS Connection Challenge for your chance to win $25 Gift Certificate, click HERE for more info.
