My Strong Anchor! Crazy 4 Challenges and More!

Happy Saturday!   It is time for another Crazy 4 Challenge with the Crazies!   Check out the C4C blog for more challenge details at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C194).  

This week's challenge is all about 
marine life above or below the water!

For my card I am using Verve's Strong Anchor  stamp set.  I combined this set with some Verve's Cut Above Banner BundleNautical, and Tiny Sweet Scallop die sets.  I am playing along with this week's Deconstructed Sketch.  I layered my pattern papers, created my focal point, added some rope looking thread for a bow and attached my tiny tag and anchor.  Playing along with Moxie Fab World Mixy-Matchy Style Challenge!


Check out what the rest of the team did with this week's challenge!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
