Roses Are Red

Okay, so I am going to "age" myself here....
but do you remember the "old" Bobby Vinton song "Roses are Red"?
It goes something like this (pretend I am singing...lol..NOT)
"Roses are Red My Love
Violets are Blue"...
I love the Bobby Vinton songs, and actually got to see him when I was about 14
at the county fair, and he came in the audience and kissed me...
at 14, I thought that was the most "coolest" thing...
any who, I am getting side tracked here (happens when you get "old').
 
 
This week at The Kraft Journal the Make It Monday Challenge is
song/book and of course to use "Kraft card stock"....
I went this newly purchased digital "jar" that has music notes on it...
I just LOVE these jars I have seen on other blogs, and had to have them..
isn't it pretty???
To keep in with the theme I added a "rose" for my song, I thought paired with the
music jar, I was well covered...lol!
 
The little jar banner/ruffle comes with the digitals.....
I added some sequins to the jar lid
, a few chipboard pieces from Cosmo Crickets" Tea for Two....
and see the scalloped edge?
that is cut from a paint color strip I was done with...
ETA: Also am entering this to the challenge at
 Moxie Fab World "Ready Made Embellishments"
I have a second post today, you can see below this if you "want to".....
have A NICE DAY!!

What a fun story :) I bet as a 14 year old that pretty much sealed the deal!

Such a pretty feminine design. I love the floral jar!

Lovely card- really like the pattern in the jar. I think I might just have some of those ready made embellishments. Thanks for the inspiration!
