NBUS and Boo Boo

This will be a quick post. After years of not being sick, it seems 2017 is going to be different now that I am retired. I've had several colds this winter and now it seems I have the flu. Very annoying. But I wanted to post this card before the NBUS (Never before used stuff) and Boo Boo challenge closed today.

My card today is actually both. I used napkins, a first for me, and a shout out to Shelly (My Creative Rumblings) for the idea. And I also have a boo boo on the card. It's not a glaring boo boo or I would have started again but can you spot it? Some might even say it isn't a boo boo but I didn't intend to do what I did.

The background is a napkin from the Dollar Tree and I used a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen on the butterfly and flowers to give it some sparkle. The sentiment was cut from MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags and then I inked it with distress ink while in the die. But I realised the die was too long for my card so then I cut the die again cutting off the end. So my white border didn't go all the way around the tag like I had intended. I guess it might be called an artisitic choice. I called it a boo boo. To finish off the card I added some self adhesive gems. I definitely will be using napkins again. They make for quick and easy cards and there is a ton of great pictures on napkins. Thank Shelly!
Check out all the fun NBUS and Boo boo cards over at Darnell's blog. Ok folks I am headed back to bed. Hope you are all well and hanging in this week.

This is a beautiful napkin card, Donna! I've used them on cards, too. There are so many absolutely stunning napkins in the stores, so why not?! I'll go check out Shelly's; thank you for the link. I very much appreciate that you got up out of your flu bed to be a good sport and share your boo boo and your gorgeous card in the Hop!! (You've paid enough sick dues for 2017, I say, so here's to the rest of the year being healthy!!) Hugs, Darnell

So sorry to hear you're down with a bug. Just give yourself time to kick it, as I've had family members languishing with 'something' for about 3 wks, and it takes a while to get over it. Your napkin card is beautiful. I'm glad you explained the Boo-Boo cause I sure didn't catch it. I've got some of these Tues Morning napkins, but I've not been real successful at that technique. I'll zip over to Shelly's but I think you've made this particular one very eye-catching. Also liked the different embellies you've added to step it up a notch! TFS & Hope you feel lots better REAL soon. Happy Easter, and hope by then, you'll be able to be around the twins. Hugs

So beautiful! I really loved the napkin class, as I had been collecting pretty designs to create with!
So sorry you have not been feeling the greatest, and now the flu! I am hoping you are on the mend now!
