Hi Stampers!

So glad you have joined us on the May Sneak Peek Tour! 
You are arriving from Justin's JK Cards Blog, isn't he talented?! 
I just love his style!

I have two projects to share with you today. 
I had a hard time choosing what products to use as I 
just had to have ALL of the preorder products - lol!

I finally decided on the stamp set - You've Got This. 
What a simple and beautiful set with encouraging sentiments.
Not much needs to be done to make 
spectacular projects with this one!


After adding color with a blender pen, I added a thin
line of Gold Glitz Dazzling Details to the entire flower.
I love the sparkle!
