Stamping Friends & LOTS of NBUS

I decided I just wanted to "play" with some things this weekend. The idea of this card has been rattling around in my head for a while. . .  but I never really committed to creating it - until now.
 I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketch
and the colors from Pals Paper Arts . 
I used lots of NBUS (Never Been Used Stuff) as per Darnell for this card.
The image is from Inky Antics.  The outside sentiment is from There She Goes stamps, and the inside sentiment is from Whipper Snapper.  (all three are NBUS)
I sprayed the white cardstock with Glimmer Mist, and used a Tim Holtz splatter mask with some watercolor paint (which added the coffee ring stains).  Again, all NBUS. 
The pattern paper and ribbon are Stampin Up.  The cardstock is from PTI.
Here is a shot of the inside - the image in the bottom left is the bottom of the stamp from the front.
As always, thanks for looking, and your comments.  And welcome to all my stamping friends!!
