Going Around in Circles!!


I made this card specifically for Darnell's NBUS Challenge #10

(It is also her 5 year blogaversary, so she has been really celebrating this time around!)

Although the challenge is basically anything goes, there is an optional theme this time of using bubble wrap.  I used it with Espresso dye ink to make the background.

I simply added a gold embossed sentiment - no that is not my NBUS item...

I also used this stamp from a set I have had for years - it may be a NBUS item (I can't recall ever using it), but in reality, 
my NBUS item is my stitched circle die!!
