I Believe Mason Jar

Good morning paper loving friends! There's a new challenge up at the Curtain Call challenge blog using this lovely image for inspiration:

So pretty! Right?
The CLASSroom is also having a 12 Tags of Christmas "with a feminine touch" that I'm really enjoying!
So in light of both challenges, I made a card / tag using the colors from the Curtain Call challenge. Here's my project:

When I first saw the inspiration photo from Curtain Call, I immediately thought of trying to fill a mason jar image with Christmas baubles. I used various circle shapes with patterns on them and embossed them using silver and sparkly blue embossing powders. I then covered it with a clear acetate die cut image of the mason jar to give make it look like the balls were inside the jar.

I was totally inspired by Jennifer McGuire's tag that had a flip open card to add a message in. I also really enjoyed the design of her tag so that part is completely CASED.
I used various sets from PaperTrey Ink, Simon Says Stamp and Just Rite Stamps.

I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Monday Challenge.
Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
