Jar of Apples

This was a fun card to make with my new Stampin up "goodies".
I decided to play along with the Freshly Made Sketch challenge #47.
 I used cajun craze for the base of the card,  Stamp set "Perfectly Preserved", DSP Orchard Harvest. ( the "thank you") was from a retired stamp set not sure of the name. 
First I embossed the jar stamp on vellum then flipped it over and shaded in the blue shadow with a marker.  I then cut out two jars with the matching Framelits Die call Cannery Set. The embossed vellum jar and one n vanilla.
I used other dies from the set to cut the jar lid and apples after I stamped them.  glues the apples underneath the vellum jar and added twine to the car lid.
thanks for stopping by.
