Set Sail!

 Good Morning, friends ♥

Monday's are fun days on my blog!
It's the day that Kelly² are both on The Project Bin stamps blog ...
yes, that's TWO Kelly's - we're double the fun!

Today, I will don my sailor's hat and set sail :)
My card is showcasing Anchor's Away

 I fell head over heals in love with a card on SCS ~
you can see that card here!
The challenge last week on SCS was to CASE a card in our gallery
that we've favorited and I immediately thought of hers.

This is my take on it ~ 
keeping the nautical theme, stripes, design, use of colors.
  I did add some jute twine behind my image 
(kinda a signature of mine, I think!) 
and switched up the sequins for dots and added gold cardstock for flair.
I tried to incorporate at least one of the sailboat's colors in the sailor hat :)
I propped up the hat on 3D foam to give it a little more dimension.

Love, LOVE this Anchor's Away stamp set so much!

Here it is from the store front:

I know it's Monday.
the weekend is over and it's back to school, work, freeways ...
But take a little time for yourself if you can.
Close your eyes ...
 picture the vast, blue ocean,
 the white-capped waves and breath in the warm, salty air ...
where will your sailing take you?
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
