Itty Bitty Jar

This week over on Daring card makers Beckie has set the dare to create a card using 5 or more items from our bits jars. You must have somewhere that you stash away little bits odd bits and pieces you use for crafting. I call mine my 'Junk Jar'. It's a sweetie jar that I have on my desk that gets filled with odds and ends, charms, stickers, die cuts, vintage bits and pieces, little bits of paper that I think at the time are worth saving, you know the kind of thing. Here's my junk jar contents I had to work with:

I started to sort some of the bits and pieces out into colour tones that worked together and tried to link them together in a theme. This is what I ended up sifting out:

And here's the card I came up with:

The papers I added are a mix up of Cosmo Cricket and Amy Tangerine. Head on over to Daring Card makers to see what other creations the design team came up with using their own junk jars and have a go yourself to see what you can come up with. :)
