Hope Is An Anchor

Happy Saturday! Wow, is it a gorgeous day here in Indiana! The trees are changing, the fall "smell" is finally in the air...I love it! Though I would love to spend all day outside, I have a lot of stamping to get done....if my family gets any bigger, I may have to start going to Hallmark again.....NOT! :)

This is a birthday card for my brother, Patrick. Since he didn't have any specific requests, I was a little stumped on what to make. Then I saw today's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast. I fell in love with the colors of this Sanctuary artwork from the GelaSkins site. This piece led me to some Memory Box "Poppyfinch" paper, which then led me to the "Anchor" set by Our Daily Bread designs.....the rest is history!

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Anchor';
Cardstock: SU Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Whisper White;
Designer Paper: Memory Box 'Poppyfinch';
Ink: SU Soft Suede and Marina Mist (stamped off once for a lighter shade);
Accessories: Paper Piercer, Spellbinders Classic Square Nestabilities and Labels 22, antique brass brads, May Arts Poly Twill, ruler to draw "frame" lines;

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a blessed weekend!
