Tri colour Xmas at The Stampman

Its a new challenge over at The Stampman this fortnight and its a Tri Colour Christmas challenge. For this I decided to make something different as I've never altered a jar before so first time for everything!  I went for a blue/silver/white combo and started by using Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage paper on silver & blue card.  The sentiment is embossed and is by Stampendous - Wish you Joy which I cut out with Nesties Labels 11.  I painted the lid with adirondack dabbers (pearl white, aqua and sailboat blue) added some fluffy fibres and a big felt snowflake (stampin' Up fankoo Sheilakins!)

Hope you can come jon in the challenge over at The Stampman!
