TSG Slow & Steady

I'm back with another TSG sneak peek! Today we're showing you the new set called Slow & Steady.



Don't forget this month's TSG challenge is to make a card/project and "bling it out" by adding something shiny, glittery, shimmery, or sparkly. For my card today, I added some gold metallic string as well as Golden Wheat Shimmerz paint to the dragonfly and on the snail's shell. The double ended tag with the sentiment is up on Dimensionals. The piercing that I did on the front of the card goes all the way through to the inside layer.
