NBUS #6 and Some Lovely Skittles

Darnell is back with her wonderful challenge


If you haven't heard before, hop over to Darnell's blog for challenge details, you are going to love it, a challenge that make you dig out all the Never-Before-Used Schtuff, are you telling me you don't have those buried under your piles? LOL! We all do!!!!!


 and this is only my PTI piles, I have piles everywhere in the craft room. LOL!


I dig out this PTI Quilted - Winter snowflake die I bought many months ago....

 
and the little skittles I won HERE at ......


 I wanted the quilted part to be have a soft green tone, so I dig out some bits and pieces of green from my scrap box...


I kind of like this, do you?


So... dig out your NBUS and play along with Darnell HERE!

you might want to check out the challenge at Double Click Skittles too, the theme is to used lots of green, I know I probably don't have enough green but I do have a soft green tone in mind when I am making this winter card. Here's the direct link to the DoubleClick challenge #43

Beautiful quilted snowflake card Kirsty! Love the soft colors you selected, they are perfectly accented with the skittles

Darnell J Knauss said...

I don't kind of like it, Kirsty, I kind of LOVE it But, sigh, now there's something else for my wish list which will eventually find its way up Mt. NBUS!! I've seen this die used before, but your design is my all-time favorite! I adore that strip of swiss dots!! Thank you so much for your lovely words and for playing in my NBUS Challenge #6!! Hugs, Darnell
