Coastal Inspiration

I am lucky enough to see it and be inspired by it everyday!  I am blessed!

Without further ado, here is my card:

I finally used this awesome stamp, Hope Anchors, from Neat And Tangled.  I LOVE it!!!  It's one complete stamp so no messing up the placement of image vs. sentiment, great right?  I used Stampin' Up! Night Of Navy Ink.  Some wonderful red plaid Designer Paper from Echo Park, A Perfect Summer.  Some Baker's Twine, a corner punch, and a few randomly 'tossed' sequins.  I also made a matching envelope--yes I am loving these!
I've also been getting in the habit of really decorating the insides of my cards, I think it adds so much and really just gives it a nice finishing touch......don't you agree?  I've never really been one to stamp an inside sentiment, I prefer writing a heartfelt note, so this design works for me.   The anchor die is by QuicKutz, super cute and matches perfectly, and then I just took some of the same gorgeous red plaid DP and made a top border using a Martha Stewart punch and I also used the left over little strip of red plaid to jazz up the bottom. Ta Da!
