Sweetest Day

Hello!  I used my brand new Unity & Jillibean Soup Itty Bitty stamp set that I just got from Paper and Such! A new online store that just opened this month, make sure you go check them out. They also carry the adorable Wild Rose Studio stamps, you'll be seeing some cards made with those real soon!
For the dots on my strawberry I used this new stuff I found at M's made by Ranger called Enamel Accents. It came in a 2 pk, 1 white and 1 black. Kinda works like liquid pearls or glossy accents. I suggest practicing first to get the feel of how it comes out of the bottle though cause it works a little differently IMO!
