Sparkle and Shine - Anchors Aweigh!

Hello friends!
It's Wednesday already and time seems to be flying by this month!
I have a real quick post sharing this simple but sparkly Lawn Fawn card I made:
I have used the fun Float My Boat stamp set for the anchor and the sentiment.
For the waves at the top of the border, I've used the Ocean Waves Border dies and to cut out my anchor, I've used the coordinating Float My Boat anchor die.

For the anchor, I embossed the image with gold embossing powder, but I didn't think it was sparkly or shinny enough, so I ended up covering the entire image with gold stickles glitter.  I thought it went well with the gold glitter strip.  I've punched a hole in the anchor and threaded some white twine through it and attached it to some layers of Stitched Circle dies.
I've added the sentiment and a gold sparkle heart enamel sticker next to at the bottom of the card.
So do you think this will qualify for sparkly enough?

Thanks for stopping by today!  So glad to have you here!
Have a great day!


Here are the challenges I'd like to enter my card for:

So cute! And, in my book, a card can NEVER have enough glitter. :D So you did the right thing with all those stickles.

Want to drop a note to thank you for your sweet comments. They mean a lot to me that you have taken the time to stop by. I have not been on the computer much. As I am caregiving for a dear friend who had Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Every day her fragile body is deteriorating. I have not ever seen someone dying right in front of me. All I can do is just keep her comfortable, encourage her and trust the Lord to be her comfort and joy. So please do not be dismayed, when I am unable to stop by your blogs and leave some love.
Your project/card is amazing and look forward to stopping by when I can. Have a wonderful day and even better week.
In His Joy
