TSTR week#107 - 'Bright and Beautiful Spring'

More inspiration and a great challenge from the girls at the Shabby Tea Room.

This weeks challenge is to use lilac, yellow, blue, kraft and a butterfly and the photo below for inspiration.

Here is my entry:

I have taken an old jar which I think had cranberry sauce in it.  I kept it because I loved the shape and though I might use it one day.

I have included lilac, yellow and blue flowers and the little with love tag is made from kraft card.  The lace rossette I made myself which was a first attempt and I then added some distress ink just to alter the colour slightly. I have then added butterflies which are stamped in black.


  1. That jar has turned out fabulous.....so much to look at. I love the lace rosette, the tag and the pieces of bling. Altogether lovely xx

  2. These are fabulous and a great idea.
