Sunday Stamps #118 Meets Just Us Girls #327 and Inkspirational Challenges

The excessive snow this past weekend enabled me to explore several card challenges I probably wouldn't have had time to pursue.  My son is in the Navy and deployed right now so he will be receiving this card at some point.  My card combines elements from the following challenges: Sunday Stamps sketch #118, Just Us Girls #327 include an anchor challenge and Inkspirational Challenge to use a previous color scheme--#10 Shades of Green for me.

Here is a closeup of the anchor cut out of CTMH Sapphire paper and then embossed with Polysparkle Clear embossing powder to give it a sparkle.

Close to My Heart products used:
     White Daisy CS
     Peacock CS
     Glacier CS
     Sapphire CS
     Artistry cartridge (Anchor cut and frame)
     Scalloped embossing folder
     3D Foam Tape
     Polysparkle Clear embossing powder (retired)

Other products:
     Paper Lace 2 cartridge (Thinking of you cut)

Here are the linked challenge graphics in case you want to join in the fun too!:

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
