Heart strings-May Arts

Welcome to the May Arts Valentine hop day 2.  Make sure you stop by and check out all of yesterdays amazing projects.  For my project I put my hearts in a jar:)
To be honest with you I have had this project half way done and sitting on my desk since last Valentines day.  I just wasn't sure how to decorate the top of the jar.  Recently I received these amazing Spellbinders dies that make beautiful flowers and I have been putting flowers on EVERYTHING lately, so they went on the top of the jar.
I am pleased with how it turned out even if it did take me a year to complete the project. :)

Here is a view from the top and the beautiful flowers.  Leave me a comment and you will be in the drawing for some beautiful May Arts ribbons.
