Curtain Call Nautical Encore

Curtain Call Nautical 2 photo CCJuly15picB.jpg

Loving the nautical theme over on the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge and I also love Verve's Strong Anchor set, so just had to make another card for the challenge :)

I used this older Freshly Made Sketch as I loved the banner tabs along the bottom and it was the perfect size for the large sentiment from Strong Anchor.

I once again focused on the navy, yellow and the anchor.  The sailor's knot got covered by the anchor, but it is there, honest!  The banner tabs were made by using the Pennant Trim die and then cutting them apart so I could squish them closer together.  The rope image is stamped above and below the sentiment on the navy, but I couldn't capture it in the photograph.  All in all, a fun, quick and easy card to make.

You can check out all the challenge details over on the Curtain Call Inspirations Challenge and have until Thursday, July 25th at 8:00 a.m. CST to link up your creation for a chance to win Verve's Strong Anchor and matching Nautical die set!

Paper: Night of Navy, So Saffron, Kraft (Stampin' Up)
