NBUS Challenge # 1

I am here with a card today to join in with Darnells brand new NBUS challenge, Darnell coined the acronym heself, which by the way means  "never-before-used schtuff"  as a way to motivate herself  to use products that she had bought, won or received as a gift that had been put away and forgotten about.
 I think most of us will be a tad guilty of that.
 So when she reached the awesome target of 500 followers she wanted to mark the occasion with something different and came up with the "I love to play at NBUS" challenge.
 If you click on the link bellow it will take you to Darnell's blog where you can find out all the information you need to take part.

                                                              NBUS Challenge # 1

Challenge # 1 is 
"ANYTHING GOES" and the theme is Friendship.

For my card I have used my NBUS Chocolate Baroque Home Sweet Home stamp set ( I think I've only had them for about two years (eek, slap my wrist)
I coloured the image using distress markers also NBUS and a water brush, I used Tim Holtz Rays embossing folder with distress inks for the background and the sentiment was a digital freebie from' t tinterweb ( bit of Yorkshire speak ). I am unusually quite pleased how it turned out.
So  I must dash I am so last minute I think I will prolly be the last person to use Mr Linky
Thank you Darnell for having this super idea and encouraging us to play along I think it's gonna be a great success. Mwahhh
Happy Art making
