So, what's NBUS, you ask? Well, it's an acronym coined by the amazing Darnell Knauss, who blogs at djkardkreations, that stands for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Not only is Darnell a fabulous card maker, she is a super sweet lady who has nurtured a wonderful community of card makers. It goes without saying that Darnell has been a huge supporter of Words 2 Scrap By -- joining us as a Guest I-Teamer... and leaving the very first comment for our very first post.
So, it is with great pleasure that I'm playing along with Darnell's second NBUS challenge. :)

I wanted to create a classic palette -- making a card for OWH that could be sent by a man or woman to a female loved one at any time or season. So, I stamped the flowers using a first/second generation technique to create a black and gray silhouetted image. On the inside, I stamped a third-generation silhouette image in the lower left corner. I went with a Miss You sentiment because it is the most commonly requested card by our troops.

To every thing there is a season.
Hoping to work on some masculine birthday cards for OWH this week. And, Looking forward to seeing lots of entries for Darnell's NBUS Challenge #2.
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
