You are my Anchor - MPC and May Arts Giveaway

Good morning everyone! If you're looking for my Day 4 GIU post you can find it here - this is my second post today and it's a fun one. We have a new contest over at Mountain Plains Crafters and it's all about the ribbon!


We had so much fun with this challenge! Be sure to head on over to the MPC post to read all about our contest and see everyone's beautiful creations.

For my card, I actually started with the ribbon - this beautiful nautical pattern simply called out to me for this challenge. I then went searching through the Silhouette Store; I thought I wanted an anchor to stamp a sentiment on, but then I discovered a cut file that was even better!


I love how it turned out! I created the sentiment mat with some scrap wood-grain cardstock I had, then cut the words out of some Lawn Fawn paper. For the anchor, I even raided my metallic cardstock stash for a lovely coppery-red piece to bring out the red in the ribbon.


See the shimmer on the navy card base? I added some spray mist in Heirloom Gold to give it some interest and mimic splashes of salt water. I used Tombow Xtreme adhesive on the ribbon and the sentiment mat, then lots and lots of tiny pieces of foam tape for the sentiment and the anchor. It still needed a little something else, so I grabbed some 4mm clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and added them in for a bit of bling and visual interest. (Thanks for the idea, Paula!)


Feeling inspired? ;) We can't wait to see what you come up with for the contest! Trust me, you want this ribbon...you need this ribbon in your life!
