Jar of Sweet Thoughts and Flowers for TGIFC120 and FabFri118

 When I saw the colors for this challenge, I immediately thought of flowers.  I had the Jar of flowers stamp designed for quite awhile.  But, it wasn't until I saw #TGIFC120 that the rest of the card came together for me.  I love using the Lemon-Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon, but I never would have thought about folding it like this if I hadn't seen the sketch for this challenge.

I am thrilled that the Ronald McDonald stamp set this year coordinates with the Jar of Love Bundle.  I loved using the Sharing Sweet Thoughts sentiment for the front and sweet hearts to help decorate the inside of the card.  Each year, Stampin' Up! donates to Ronald McDonald House Charities and designs a stamp set for which a portion of the sales is donated to Ronald McDonald House charities.  The Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set is the Ronald McDonald House stamp set in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  I love this stamp set anyway, the fact that it donates to one of my favorite charities is just an extra bonus.
