DS113-Love You Anchors

The 113th Deconstructing sketch is up and I am playing. I had my Reverse Confetti stamps out last week, so I made more than one card. I showed you my rocker card yesterday, today is my nautical card.

 I hadn't used the banner stamp from the Happy Harbor set. I stamped it here in Midnight Muse ink on a Kraft panel. The sentiment was stamped in Wild Cherry ink from MFT. I needed just another something, so I reached for the teeny polka dotted heart from Arrows -n- Elements

I stamped the anchor image in Midnight Muse and cut it out and added it to a Lemon Drop button. This card needed that extra pop of color. I love pulling out an accent color from the designer paper by adding a embellishement in the same color. I also used the anchor border stamp along the bottom of the Kraft panel in Bashful Blue ink. I hit all the edges of my cardstock  with Walnut Stain distress ink. 

Here is the current Deconstructing Sketch. Check out the challenge HERE.
