Rough Waters - Crafty Creations Challenge #84

Hi Everyone,
  Challenge 84 this week at Crafty Creations is to use a mode of transportation on your card!  Our sponsor this week is Hope Jacare from our very own design team.  She has some AMAZING stamps and they can be found at Stitchy Bear Stamps here.  Anyhow, I colored the image with my Copics and then decided to make a window card so it looks like a porthole from a boat.  I embossed the outside of the card with divine swirls folder from cuttlebug.  I cut the circles using my nestables.  The sentiments were computer generated. 

The anchors were made from Potpourri Basket cartridge.  I welded a number of the anchor shadows together with my Gypsy to make a little border.

 I also added this beach chair which is a sticker from Jolee's.  Lastly, I decided that I needed something on the side - so I added this shear ribbon with one more anchor to hang on like a charm.
