post 3 of 3 for today...click HERE for my new Design Team Announcement!


We're so excited to kick off our first challenge over on The Heart Desires blog!  Check out the BEAUTIFUL inspiration:


I couldn't decide what to focus on because I literally LOVE everything...so here's how I was inspired:


Inspired by: 

nautical theme
colors
gold
hexagons

So, here's a different angle of my card, do you see the embossing on the anchor panel?


I love to add unexpected touches to my designs.  It's quite a bit more evident in real life, just hard to capture in photography.

I hope that you check out the challenge #1, my teamies have designed some awesome projects!


These are my shop supplies:
