Grandmothers

What do jam, jelly, jars and junk mail have in common? ... the letter J, of course. this card is my answer to the challenge theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge -- J is for... At first I thought that the challenge would be a little difficult. Then I couldn't stop thinking of J words. My background is made from die cut junk mail envelopes which I colored using pan pastels. The jars were die cut from  a piece of plastic packaging. The jars, labels and contents are stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs. The sentiment is from Club Scrap.
Hels at Ink on my Fingers challenged us with the theme bits and pieces. Once I started working on this card, I understood the challenge. All of the contents of the card were cut from bit and pieces of paper in my scrap box. I am also entering my card in the Marks Finest Papers Colors challenge -- blue, lime, red.
