There She Goes Sneaky Peek #3 - Nature of Friendship

Here we come again with more from There She Goes!! I think this set - Nature of Friendship - is my favorite of the new ones being released (don't get me wrong, I love 'em all, but this one does have butterflies, don'tcha know!)!

Since I ended up using butterflies on this card, I decided to put myself a little ahead of schedule and call this card #80 in my "Follow the Butterflies" challenge (see the link and slideshow to the right if you want more info on what I am talking about!). What??? Where did #79 go, you ask??? Actually, I DID do a card #79, but because of the TSG Sneak Peeks this week I haven't posted it here yet!! Stay tuned . . .

I also have to thank my fellow TSG Trendsetter, Denise (aka peanutbee on SCS) for her help in inspiring this card. I've been admiring all of the lovely paper piercing that she has been doing on her cards lately, and then I remembered that I actually HAVE some paper piercing templates from Spellbinders!! DUH!!!

Stamps: Nature of Friendship by There She Goes
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Gray
Ink: Basic Black, Whisper White craft, Basic Gray
Accessories: Spellbinders Large Classic Oval (S4-110) and Large Classic Scalloped Oval (S4-111) Nestabilities, Spellbinders Pinking Pierceability (S4-165), White embossing powder, silver cord, Silver Ice Stickles, pop-up glue dots, sheer silver organza ribbon

And here we go again . . . Visit my fellow Trendsetter girlfriends at their blogs below (click on their names), leave a comment at each location's sneak peek post for the "Nature of Friendship" set AND here, and then go back to Jessica's Blog and enter your name into the raffle there!
