Altered Sweetie jar

As recently inserted on my regular blog, I had passed my driving test on 24th August. As a wee 'thank you' and token of my appreciation, I jazzed up this Ikea jar I bought a while back but never got round to altering. Using the Sizzix flower die, Old Olive SU! Designer Series Paper and sentiment from "Wonderful Words"; Old Olive ink pad; Grossgrain Ribbon - Old Olive from SU!
