You Anchor Me


The weekend is winding down and tomorrow it's back to regular life.  I'm super excited because my brother will be arriving for a visit!  Whoop whoop!  And he's bringing me lots of crafty goodies! Double whoop whoop!  For now though, here's a card for a few challenges.  I took inspiration from Therese's card over at Muse and it happened to work nicely with the current Poppy Sketches challenge.  And because I used some Paper Smooches goodies I'm joining the Anything Goes challenge at Paper Smooches Sparks.  Triple threat!  Hope you all have a lovely evening!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Real Red, Island Indigo, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment and flags from Wicked Nauticool) Paper Smooches, (Line from Faux Ribbon) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Real Red, Island Indigo, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up

What a sweet card - I love that sentiment, and the little banner underneath is the perfect not-girly embellishment :)
