This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog:

Taste of Summer paper packet is available for only $8.95 USD! Featuring bold, vibrant colors, this exclusive paper packet is perfect to pair with your sweet summery memories, and provides 
delicious designs for your layouts, cards, and more! 
 I decided to create a couple starburst cards that show a sampling of all the papers;
 6 double sided patterns.

Top card: Happy Birthday is from Holiday Tags D1560
I used the zip strip on both cards - perfect for a border.
The stamped flowers and leaves are from Lovely Birthday B1462
stamped in Smoothie Z2196 and Clover Meadow - retired
I added liquid glass centers to the stamped flowers  and a gold gem
to the large water spritzed, crinkled and inked flower.
Bottom card: The Cricut Artiste( pg 33) was used to cut the sentiment tag and
the frame (Holiday Tags D1560) was stamped in Gypsy ink Z2190.
 "Just Because" is from last month's SOTM Type Set.
This card has gold sequins topped with Sparkles Clear Z1752.
The clear Sparkles are colored with the Lavendar ShinHan marker.
The green leaves are the same as the first card.

 Plus, as a special bonus, during the month of May you can also purchase the exclusive Taste of Summer bonus D-size stamp set for $17.95 USD / $19.75 CAD.
