I find it hard to CAS cards but today I made this card for the MFP simple Salutations challenge.  the Theme was "gardens" and we could not use flowers, so I hope it is ok that I only used them on the inside of the card.  I used a watering can for the front of the card image.

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.
Happy Stamping!

Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!  This card has a window sheet attached behind the popped up on dimensionals top note SU die. (hard to tell in picture) the DSP is layered under the window sheet attached to card base.  Die cut the butterfly not sure of the name of the die, stamped it and ran it through the vintage wallpaper embossing folder, added pearls, used glue dots to attach.  The pearl button accent was an old button from my Grandmother.
Thanks for stopping by.
