Jars o' buttons

I'm on a mission to use up a ton of my embellishments...partly to make room and partly so that I can buy more! I seem to have quite a lot of buttons, especially considering that I personally have never purchased loose buttons (thanks Mom!), so I'm going to try my hand at some of the lovely button projects I've seen. My first attempt is a button-jar scene, using these sweet Jam Jar digis from Melonheadz.

I was inspired by this week's "Rainbow" challenge at Can You Digi It?, so I made a rainbow gradient for the sentiment (from Create with TLC) and sewed a border with red, orange, yellow, green, and violet bakers twine.

I used the third jar in the set for the inside message section:
