Make it Monday #5 - Distressed Edges



This week's PTI Make it Monday Challenge was on Distressing Edges. You can click on the picture above to be taken to Nichole's blog for more information on the challenge! :)

I used this opportunity to make a birthday card for my best friend's son who will be turning six in April. As soon as I saw the adorable little caterpiller from PTI's Way To Go, Kiddo! Stamp set, I thought he would be perfect in the Friendship Jar.



Here is a closeup of the edges:

Wow that is the cutest card! I love how you did the mason jar with the caterpillar - I remember putting caterpillars in jars when I was little. Such a great memory brought about by your fantastic card! TFS! :)
