Seasonal Candy Jar Topper I, Cricut Circle Monthy Challenge Entry

Here is my entry for the Cricut Circle Blog's Monthly Challenge.  Their challenge was to design a scrapbook page or home decoration project with the theme "Celebrating Creativity".  I didn't know what to make.  I wasn't going to enter the challenge because I could not think of anything to make.  Then I had some inspiration while shopping.  I thought this candy jar needed to be decorated  with a seasonal topper.  And don't stop there, I plan to make one for every season.  I can just picture switching the color on the sunflower to reds and it can be a poinsettia for Christmas.  So, look forward to more candy jar toppers because I am on a creative roll with this idea.

I love this. I need a small centerpiece for a scrapbook club I belong to, actually, I run it, would you share how you did this? I am on the MB as PKH. Maybe my email will show up for you when I join to follow.
