Jar of nothing

Hi everyone. This week at The Paper Makeup Stamps Blog it is time to play a Tic-Tac-Toe. 

You have plenty of options what to create. You have one week share your project with us. And remember, you have to use a digi stamp somewhere on your project.
I chose the first row down: Anything but a card, ribbon and red. Just noticed that first row is also represented on my project :o) 
First time I saw a Jar of Nothing, I knew I'll make one in Estonian :) Here it is
Sentiment: "Nothing"
 I used frame from Framed Digi Set and berries from Color it Winter Tag Digi Set. Leaves and berries are colored with atYouSpica glitter pens. I changed the color of the fame in PhotoShop and also added some digital snowfakes to the labels. I added lots of red stickles to the edge of frames and also to the berries.

Sentiment: "Beautiful holidays!"
The strip of white paper was punched with edge punch from both sides. I made a red lines to it with glitter pen and added liquid pearls to it.

Sentiment: "Remember, then I asked, what would you like to get for Christmas. You could ask everything... a new car... vacation to somewhere warm... a cottage by the lake... everything your heart desire... But noooo.... You said: "nothing." I looked from top of the hill and below the hill, far and near, and here it is: a jar full of nothing"

Sentiment: "Every time you think of something you would like to get, write it to the piece of paper and put it in this jar. Next time someone ask what you wish to get, you can take the answer from this jar."
Jar lid is covered with recycled felt-a-like fabric and to the edge I clued a white fancy ribbon. On top is a few fibers from glittering red sting, a poinsettia, and piece of pearl string. The middle of the flower is colored with golden glittering gel pen and it is recolored with Promarker. It is very sparkly :o)
