Friends and blessings...

It's here!  Darnell's NBUS #5!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Labour Day weekend and continuing this week with a great spirit!
I know that I was anxious to get the week going with a few challenges happening right now.  It is the first day of Darnell's 10 day NBUS #5 challenge, and although you might look at this card and say "hey, you've used that stamp before"...you are so right!  What is new to me, and NEVER been used are the water colour paints!  I just recently acquired (a gift from my sweet hubby...just because) the Kuretake Gansai Tambi set of 36!  I have been yearning for these for a little while now after seeing so many beautiful creations out there!  The colours do not disappoint!
My pomegranate stamp is from A Stamp in the Hand and the sentiment stamp from a retired SU set circa 2005.
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

My layout is from Leigh's awesome sketch #139 at 
CASE this sketch

As this is a one layer card, I am also submitting it to The Inkspirational "One Layer Card" challenge.
