When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

For my creation, I used the Anchor Stamp set for a more masculine card to send to a gentlemen friend from our church who has been battling  cancer.  I don't normally post too many masculine cards on my blog but am trying to post more of a variety.  A little more blah in my opinion but I do think it is good for a guy. The dp I found in my scrap bin and just looked like a stormy ocean to me so I thought it would fit perfectly.  The sentiment is over stamped over an anchor image.  The sentiment is framed with an oval and the Fancy Tags die.

Stamps: Anchor from Our Daily Bread Designs
Paper: scrap dp, kraft, night of navy
Accessories: twill ribbon from SU, Anchor charm,soft swirls embossing folder, brown and white Baker's twine
