SOS Jars and OWH Friendship

The challenge over at the Shopping our Stash #74 is "Out of the jar, or use a jar." The challenge at the OWH Stars and Stamps mid-week throwdown is to create a "friendship" card. I combined both challenges for this card. I used a retired SU! "All Wrapped Up" image of a jar, and filled it with paper buttons, done with a MS punch. All the papers are from the LillyBee Autumn Spice paper pad, and I added some early espresso cardstock for mats. Two of these papers have tiny canning jars on them - I love that! The sentiment is by SNSS, and I added some tiny button brads to the corners of the image. The red punched border was done with an EK lattice chain edger punch, while the tiny scalloped border was done with an EK dotted scallop punch.

This is my 2nd post for today, and I may have another one later today. I suppose I'm making up for not posting anything yesterday :)

Oh so darn cute - those baby buttons. This card all goes together so nice and I see you are getting good use from the MS buttons. I think, after seeing all you've done with them, I'm going to have to get buying. Back out in the back yard. Enjoy the rest of the day.

How cute to fill the jar with buttons! And I love the tiny buttons and jars elsewhere on the card--it just all fits together nicely.

I love jars filled with stuff!! This is awesome!! OK, I love buttons too. I have TINS filled with buttons. Maybe I should transfer them into JARS!! ;)

Love the way you used the Martha Stewart button punch. I have that punch as well and never really know how to use it - TFS!

Oh, this is just too cute. I have a jar stamp so I'll have to remember this.

Very pretty card. I'm very partial to any cards made with buttons. I think it always gives a card a Homey look.
