Inspired by Photo for Just Us Girls

Hello friends!
Happy weekend and hope you're all doing well!

I'm here today to share this week's challenge as guest designer for this month over at
JUST US GIRLS
For this week's challenge, they have a fabulous inspirational photo for you:
It's really cold over my way right now and this photo really evoked a nice and warm Summer feeling for me which I think would be great about right now! LOL!
So here's the card that I came up with for this challenge:

I loved the colors in this, so my point was to sort of mimic the the anchor on the wall with the yellow color.  I have used the Lawn Fawn Stitched circles die to cut out a yellow circle that fit the size of the anchor which was also die cut from the Lawn Fawn Float My Boat die cut set in silver glitter card stock.  I punched a hole in the center top of the anchor and glued it over the yellow circle.  The circle is popped up with some foam squares.

For the stitched lines behind the anchor and the navy chevron pattern that was stamped along the left side of the card front, I have used the Whimsy Stamps Clear set Basic Backgrounds and Borders.  The stitched lines were stamped on the die cut circle with the same yellow color as the card stock.  I stamped the chevron image with navy ink.

For the sentiment I used the Lawn Fawn Float My Boat stamp set and stamped it in the bottom corner with navy ink.  I've also taken the Lawn Fawn hearts die set and cut out a navy heart  to add above the sentiment along with some sequins which I've also added a dot of silver Sickles glitter glue to in the center of each.  I rounded the two right corners of the white card front with my corner chomper and attached this onto an A2 sized white card base.

So now you need to go over and check out the Just Us Girls Challenge blog to see what the rest of the talented ladies have come up with using this photo too!  Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
Hope you are staying warm and enjoy your weekend! :)

That's a really cute card with the glittered anchor and graphic chevrons on the side! However; it didn't make me feel very warm as I sit here looking at the 3 ft of snow on the ground with blizzard like conditions outside! BRrrrrr!!!

Lori Kobular said...

Vicki I love your summery card and that sentiment is perfect! We are in the middle of a blizzard here in NJ so the summery look to your card is a nice break from reality! Thanks for playing along with us at Craft Rocket Challenges!

First: Hello wonderful, amazing Vicki! Hanging my head in shame at being so behind in commenting; as I mentioned in my recent "poor me" post, life’s been supremely hectic, what with work, travel (which involved work…crazy amounts!), DT commitments (which I’ve fallen behind in, too) and a plethora of other stuff! I hope that my ‘thought bubbles of love’ for all your cards have reached you, because I send them frequently! Time to for some catching up and this crisp, clean, fabulous glittery anchor card is a charming starting point! Talk about a marvelous translation of the inspiration photo, shaped with your special touches! Nautical nifty in every way!
hugs~c
