PTI January Blog Hop

Hi friends,
Today, I'm participating in:

The challenge this month is to take a fav project from last year & create a second card inspired by it.
I chose this card:
I painted the little shamrocks with Shimmerz paints after a little touch of Copics, added diamond Stickles to the bottom of the jar, & covered the whole thing with Crystal Lacquer to give it that glass-like appearance. The shimmer is so pretty :) This cute image is called "Wee Bit & Lots o' Luck" from Designed 2 Delight.

I wanted to recreate this card as close as possible, but with different elements.
Here's my version 2 card: Just in time for Valentine's Day
(Sorry for the glare :(   I used the Friendship Jar & FJ Spring Fillers for the image. I did the same thing as with the shamrock card except I used different Shimmerz colors: Opal, Pixie Dust, & Bubble gum and achieved the same shimmery & sparkly effect :)
Here's another peek at that:
This was the first time I've inked up this set & it's about time I did! I luuuv all the combinations & possibilities this set offers- definitely need to use it again very soon :)

Here they are together:

Thanks so much for taking a peek. Don't forget all the fun starts on Nichole's blog.
Gotta Go!
