CAS 221 Strong Anchor

I'm happy to be playing along with this week's Clean and Simple challenge at Splitcoast Stampers as guest designer.

This week the challenge is a theme - that smells great!

I've used some new and old Verve to answer the theme with sea air - one of my favourite smells!

Strong Anchor is part of the FAB new Verve release. I used nestabilites to emboss my card, and stamped the rope circle inside the embossed circle. I added a cute little wheel above the sentiment. The anchor is from the Nautical Die Set, I punched a hole in the top and threaded through some twisted hemp twine.

I wanted some detail on my base card so I used the large background from Artful Elegance and heat embossed it in clear.

Here's the inside of my card...

I just love that gorgeous sentiment!

I hope you'll play along with the CAS challenge this week, I'd love to see your take on great smells!
