Progressive Freebie Challenge at the Outlawz

Every month on the very first day, the Outlawz Progressive Freebie group introduces a new sponsor. If you linked up your project with last month's sponsored image, you will receive this love digi from Blueberry Bear Digi Stamps.
Missed out last month? All you have to do is purchase this image and link it up, and you will receive next month's image for free!
I created a Happiness Jar. My daughter came up with the idea of a Happiness Jar. She writes a blog of positive affirmations and helpful hints to achieve self-love called Scars and Sparkles. Your container can hold every happy little moment you can squeeze out of ordinary days to remind you that life is really sweet even when things aren't going your way.
 I colored my image with Copics and highlighted with white gel pen, then fussy-cut her out. Starting with a mason jar, I piled on a liberal amount of homemade mod-podge, tissue papers, shimmer mist (my own handmade), assorted jewels and butterflies, and a smidge of washi tape and ribbon. And for my finishing touch, a pretty white feather (I love using feathers on my projects).
Whether you join in the progressive freebie this month, there's a whole lot of inspiration at the Outlawz Progressive Freebie this month. Hope to see you there!!

Nice project, but you did not use a rubberstamp from De Stempelwinkel as your main focus point, to be precise you did not use a stamp from De Stempelwinkel at all.
