Jelly Beans Anyone?

     Greetings!  It's Tuesday and that means Shining the Light with Our Daily Bread Designs!  The first challenge of 2014 is a 2-0-1-4 recipe challenge.  For example use 2 stamps, no ribbon, 1 designer paper and 4 embellishments.  Here's my card.   
Linda Carson, ODBD

     My 2-0-1-4 recipe is 2 - Canning Jars dies,  0 - sentiments,  1 - Canning Jar fillers (jelly beans) and 4 - small Canning Jars.   It's a really fun challenge.  I used a mask on the smaller jars to fill them with jelly beans.  Each lid has a different color with matching twine and matching die background.  Whimsical stitching just adds to the fun.
     For more creative inspiration on this challenge, please check out the artwork from these beautiful ladies,

  1. Happy New Year Linda!! I am so glad to have you as a full time member on the team!! Welcome!!

    Your card is so creative and gorgeous!! I just love your different colored mason jars with your beautiful vibrant coloring of the jelly beans. The sewing is a gorgeous touch as well!!


  2. Happy New Year, Linda! And I LOVE jelly beans, and these are fabulous! I love the colors (lots of coloring to perfection), and your DP is wonderful. The stitching is such a perfect finishing touch! I love it…so sweet like you! Hugs, sweet and precious friend!

  3. very cute, looks like you have one Easter card done :) Love your stitching to frame them all!

  4. What a sweet colorful card! Love your sewing on the edges too!

  5. This is just soooo cute - I love it!

  6. Wonderful card! Love the bright colours with matching lid and twine colours. That stitching around the outside is fantastic - gives the card a really nice finish :-)

  7. I love this card because of the bright colors. It's one of my all-time favorites. Unusual, eye-catching, entertaining. Anyone would love to open up an envelope and find this inside. It should be a "get-well" card.

  8. Oh, my goodness, this is a fun challenge! Just look at all those jelly beans, and each one colored so beautifully. I love jelly beans. What a fun card! You're off to a great start with the team, Linda!
