Stampin' Up! Jar of Love Firelfies

Hi Stampin' Friends!!
I finally mailed my Jar of Love card kits so I can share my cards now!! I love this darling set and had a difficult time choosing exactly which cards to create since there were so many adorable options on the interwebs. I poked around and combined a few designs, so some of them may look familiar to others you've seen on my Pinterest board.

Here is the first card:

Stamps: Jar of Love
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder, Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder
Accessories: Everyday Jars Framelits, Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, Silver Ribbon, Daffodil Delight Marker, Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Stampin' Sponge

Kit Includes: 
1 - Elegant Eggplant card base
1 - Wisteria Wonder embossed card front
1 - Whisper White piece for stamping
1 - Smoky Slate large strip
1 - Smoky Slate small piece
1 - Whisper White strip
1 - Smoky Slate Ribbon

Using Wisteria Wonder ink (or any other shade of purple ink you have), sponge the top edge of the Wisteria Wonder embossed card base. This is to give the appearance of the sky getting darker. Do the same to the longer Smoky Slate strip.
Attach the Wisteria Wonder card front onto the Elegant Eggplant card base.
Using Basic Black ink, stamp the medium sized jar onto the larger Smoky Slate strip.
Using Wild Wasabi ink (or any other shade of green ink you have), stamp the "grass" around the jar. It is the image of a stem with leaves.
Attach the larger Smoky Slate strip that you stamped on, onto the Wisteria Wonder card front.
Using Smoky Slate ink (or any shade of gray ink you have), stamp the jar lid image onto the smaller Smoky Slate piece.. Cut out using coordinating Framelit. Attach near your stamped jar image using Dimensionals.
Using Basic Black ink, stamp seven fireflies onto the Whisper White cardstock. Cut out using coordinating Framelit.
Color body of fireflies with the Daffodil Delight marker or any other shade of yellow marker you have. If you have the Wink of Stella Glitter Pen, glitter up the wings of the fireflies. Attach fireflies "inside" the jar using Liquid Glue so they are flush with the jar. Attach the "escaped" fireflies using Dimensionals so they look like they are flying.
Stamp a sentiment onto the Whisepr White piece. Notch the edge if you would like. Attach to left side using Dimensionals.
Attach Smoky Slate Ribbon.

Yay!! Your first card is finished!!
