When life throws you lemons....card

I recently made this card with a Sizzix die cut I purchased on mark down at Hobby Lobby.  It comes with a center piece to create 3-D jars. It also comes with a different shaped jar.  But I still was not satisfied after I saw the smaller die but with the embossing folder I had to have it too!  Here is a card that I made with that set.  So I started this card waaaayyy before I made that one, but I never quite got all the elements together.  I finally just pieced a few together to send some friends having some hard times.  I thought the lemonade was cheery!

I am not sure if you can tell but I cut a piece of acetate as well to layer on top to be the "glass".  It gives it a great effect.

As you can see I fussy cut one sentiment and left one on a rectangle.  Which do you like better?
