Well, I would imagine you are wondering what I am up to with this post?
I am VERY excited to be a "Guest Designer" for the next 3 months at 
"Sparkle N Sprinkle"!!!!

I had so much fun working with their glitters, embossing powders and stamps
that I can hardly wait for "next" months "Reveal"..LOL!
But, let me show what I have for today!

I used the beautiful new stamp set Spring Window #704.
I loved the brick on the stamp and decided to somewhat "mimic" it
by using pieces of Tear-ific tape placed random on white card stock.
I added Parisian Mist  Glitter and had a nice sparkle brick for my background.

I stamped the Spring Window image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I colored the image with Copics.
I used Brushable Glue on the flowers and added Bubble Gum glitter.
The flowers in the vase I used Dimensional Glue
then adding the same Bubble Gum glitter...
I love how this glue makes the flowers "3D".

The butterfly I die cut and it was
coated with Brushable Glue which
I sprinkled Bubble Gum glitter on.

I stamped my sentiment with Versamark
then, added Silver Detail embossing powder and heat set it.

Now head on over to Eret's blog to see her beautiful project.
Don't forget to leave a comment on EACH blog in the reveal
for a chance to win the entire release!
