I LOVE THIS CARD! I am very proud at how it turned out.
Here is a close-up on the two ribbon ribbon treatments I used. For the twine I braided 3 pieces together to make it more like rope; I got the idea from a beautiful card I found on Pinterest. You can also see the background paper, which I made into my own DSP. I took a Marina Mist piece of Parker's Patterns DSP and stamped the anchor several times and then colored it in in the same colors as the featured anchor to make my own custom DSP. Looks great together doesn't it, without taking too much focus away from the main elements of the card.
I cut out each of the stamped pieces and sponges the edges in crumb cake. I also sponges the banner in crumb cake and the Night of Navy piece in Early Espresso.
Thanks for checking me out today,
