As I said last Sunday, sometimes creating a card takes a few days. But I have found that other times cards are destined to work out. You just find that perfect color combo, or the best layout ever, and the card is easy, breezy, beautiful (Cover Girl!). Luckily, this card was one of those. The Can You Case It challenge for this week is a wonderful color combination that uses pinks, dark blues, and neutrals. And no matter what the layout or color combo this week, the card had to have anchors. You see, my little sister, Beth, is obsessed with anchors, and she turned 27 on Thursday. Between the anchors and color challenge, it was kismet. A pink and navy anchor card! Yes, please!
I started by stamping the pink and navy patterned paper for the background, using anchors from the Float My Boat by Lawn Fawn and Sail Away by Technique Tuesday stamp sets, with SSS Doll Pink and Lawn Fawn Deep Sea inks. The Fishtail Banner focal point is from Gina Marie Designs, and I used the new Happy Summer Banner die from Taylored Expressions to cut out the happy banner. I white heat embossed the birthday stamp, and it's an old standby. I have found that I use this birthday stamp a lot, and it is a sentiment that I cut apart from the Big Birthday Wishes stamp set in the April 2015 SSS card kit. I finished the card off with some navy and white baker's twine and glossy accents on the anchor.
Have a good day.
