A LIM card using NBUS!!

Hi everyone from a very hot and sunny London:) It's got very cloudy now and we are forecast some light rain this evening but the rest of the week looks fab! I hope it lasts for Saturday as we are singing at a summer fair in Highgate and I don't like getting wet!
Anyway back to my card which I am entering in two challenges this week, the first being Less is More, come and see:
For our Colour Challenge this time we have
The colours in your bedroom!
 That should give you the chance to work with colours you love!


 My bedroom is taupe and turquoise and I have used a NBUS stamp set from Artemio. I used an SU punch to create a partial aperture and then punched out the whole flower and added a WOW sentiment.


There is a new challenge on the block originating from Darnell of the fabulous djkardkreations and it is to make a card using at least one NBUS which is her acronym for "never before used schtuff ". The theme is Anything goes but with friendship in mind. Although my card doesn't have friend on it it is for a friend's birthday next month. Do pop over and check out the criteria and the wonderful cards that Darnell creates. There are prizes to be won as well:)

Yum, Val, your bedroom colors are favorites of mine! I think Chrissie should have had us post of photo of our bedrooms, too. Wouldn't that have been fun?

Your card is so soft and summery and I really like the unique layout you have created! Your friend will love it!

Thank you for your kind words and for joining in my NBUS Challenge! I appreciate it very much!

It's wonderful to hear that the UK is in for some sunshine! Now I just hope it doesn't got too hot! (We broke a record here yesterday with 106!) I've got my ginfers crossed that the nice weather will hold out through Saturday for your concert at the fair! Hugs, Darnell

A stunning card, Val! Hope you have enjoyed the sunshine. Sorry it has been a while - my visits to blogland are brief at the moment as I am still writing reports, and I want to watch springwatch too!

Such a pretty pastel card Val,love the soft colours and your great stamping too. Hope you don't get wet,... isn't the sun great too lately! Finished scrubbing the tiles at last, they are cream and the grout is white...big mistake. Colin is replacing the grout with dark grey now...only 3 more floors to do lol. He is also dismantling our swimming pool.....too much work now boo hoo, looking at spa's though.We used to have one and I miss it :) Viv xx
