TSG Sneak Peek and SC213, CC203 Butterfly Happiness


Happy Wednesday!!!

Today starts the Sneak Peek for *There She Goes*. We'll be showing you 3 different Set's the next few days!!!

We are starting out with the Set called *Very Punny*. As you can tell it's a fun one!!! This Set is also a design concept by our super talented Team member Holly McMillen!!!

Since I didn't get a chance to play the CC203 yesterday.... I thought I'd use it on my card today!!! Jessie did a fab job hosting the Challenge yesterday by choosing the following colors - Baja Breeze, Pacific Point and Garden Green. Another combo I would have never tried - LOL!!! But I'm glad I did, because I think it's too darn cute!!! Perfect for my little whale image I used from the featured Set!!!

The sentiment and image were stamped in Memento *Tuxedo Black* Ink. The whale was water colored with Baja Breeze and the water with Pacific Point. Next I layered the image with more Pacific Point, Whisper White and Garden Green. The last layer was again Whisper White and I pierced around the square. I dressed the card up with some Pacific Point Ribbon using a Styled Silver Ribbon Holder. I also added some Silver Brads. Of course I used tons of Stampin Dimensionals for the *There She Goes Challenge* that's going on over on Jessica Knutsen's blog .

**************************************

Next is my card for the SC213 I made last night.

The Sketch was so fun that I had to play along right away!!! I couldn't sleep again..... and at least creating the card kept me busy!!!

The card came together fairly quickly. I used the same colors as the above card CC203. I used another Set from *There She Goes* called *Butterfly Happiness*. The DP is from the Pacific Point Pattern Collection. I inked the vine image lightly with the Baja Breeze Ink first and then I added the sentiment with the Garden Green Ink. Next I layered the sentiment with Baja Breeze, Pacific Point plus the larger Whisper White CS - which I pierced.

According to the Sketch I added the flowers (Walmart) - dressing it up with the SU Filigree Flower plus some smaller Martha Stewart ButterflyPunch (Michael's). Again - I added tons of Stampin Dimensionals by raising the different panels.
Please check out my Team members card as well Holly, Faith, Bev, Maki and Stephanie.

Hope you'll stop by again tomorrow to see the second part of the Sneak Peek?!? ~TFL~
